Phillies Vs Nationals: Cliff Lee Takes The Hill As Phillies Look For Sweep

The Philadelphia Phillies will try for a series sweep over the visiting Washington Nationals on Sunday when veteran Cliff Lee (2-7) opposes Jordan Zimmermann (9-7) at Citizens Bank Park. Starting at 1:35 p.m. ET on PHL 17, the Phillies will also try to extend their winning streak to four and help Lee earn his third victory of the season.

Despite owning the major league's best strike-to-walk ratio and compiling an ERA of 3.78, the Phillies have won just seven of Lee's 22 starts. If Lee were to earn the win Sunday, it would be his first victory at home.

Meanwhile, Zimmermann enters with a 2.54 ERA, the second-lowest mark in the National League.
