Philadelphia Phillies Vs. Baltimore Orioles Score: Cliff Lee Surrenders Three Run Homer, Phils Tied At 4-4

After three and a third innings, it looked like Sunday would be the day that Cliff Lee would get his first win of the 2012 season. And then the bottom of the fourth happened.

Lee and the Phillies led 4-1 headed into the bottom of the fourth, but the Baltimore Orioles rallied, and tied the game at four.

Matt Wieters led off the bottom of the fourth with a rare Lee walk, but was erased on a double play by Ronny Paulino. Lee then walked Mark Reynolds before surrendering a two-out double to Steve Pearce. Steve Tolleson then belted a three-run homer off of Lee, tying the game at 4-4.

Through the first four innings, Hunter Pence is 2-2 with a pair of RBI. Juan Pierre also has two hits for the Phillies.
