So close to another shutout, Cliff Lee had to settle for a team win. Ryan Howard hit an RBI double in the 10th inning soon after Lee fell one strike short of his seventh shutout, and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Florida Marlins 2-1 Thursday to sweep the day-night doubleheader. The Phillies, who won the opener 3-1, reduced their magic number for clinching a fifth straight NL East title to two.
