Phillies Strong-arm Game One from Yanks

The Phillies dominated game one against the Yankees on the strength of 2 Chase Utley home runs and a brilliant pitching performance by Cliff Lee. Lee went the distance, shutting down the vaunted Yankee lineup. Lee also pitched in a couple key defensive plays, one a matter-of-fact pop out which showed exactly how relaxed the defending champs are.

No signs of rust from the Phillies; no sign of being intimidated by the city that never stops talking.

It wasn't a surprise to Phillies Nation, but perhaps Yankees fans - not to mention much of the baseball world and Vegas odds-makers - now realize this isn't the series they thought it was.
