Cliff Lee wins August Pitcher of the Month Award
Despite having a downright awful month of August last season with the Texas Rangers, Cliff Lee was brilliant with the Philadelphia Philllies this past August, earning himself the August Pitcher of the Month Award.
In 5 August starts, Lee went 5-0 with a 0.45 ERA. He walked only 8 while striking out 39 in 39.2 innings. On August 4th, Lee pitched a complete game shutout against the San Fransisco Giants, his 5th shutout of the year.
Lee has now won 5 career Pitcher of the Month awards, including his June honor earned earlier this year.
