Yes, Cliff Lee and the rest of the Philadelphia Phillies held total domination over the Los Angeles Dodgers last night, winning an 11-0 laugher.
Joe Blanton makes is first start of the 2009 playoffs against ex-Phillie Randy Wolf. The Phils were already subdued by a former teammate and Phillies Phan Club member, Vicente Padilla's Flotilla earlier this series in game 2.
