Cliff Lee blanks Dodgers in Phillies win

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Cliff Lee scattered four hits over eight innings, struck out 10 and retired 21 of his last 22 batters to lead the Philadelphia Phillies to a 7-0 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Monday night.
    
Carlos Ruiz hit a two-run homer and a two-run double and Ryan Howard also went deep for the Phillies in the opener of a four-game series.
    
Lee (3-2) had at least one strikeout in every inning he pitched and did not walk a batter, giving way to Jeff Manship after 113 pitches.
    
Lee has 38 strikeouts and two walks through his first five starts, after leading the majors in strikeout to-walk ratio and fewest walks per nine innings during each of the previous two seasons.
