(Jordan Zimmermann deserved better, perfect through 5 innings.)
"I just got outpitched tonight."

Probably didn't matter , since Cliff Lee isn't Joe Blanton.
Jordan Zimmermann 7 IP, 5 H, 4 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 4 K. 85 pitches - 64 strikes. On any other night, that should be good enough to win.
Jesus Flores gets first hit in ages, pinch hitting in the 9th inning.
