As the Dodgers face the Phillies tonight, the pitching matchup is a bit of a mismatch. David Young broke down Ted Lilly's 2011 season in great detail earlier today. The other starter tonight also happens to be a former Expos southpaw farmhand.

Cliff Lee has faced the Dodgers three times in his career, including the postseason, and he has three wins. In those three games, Lee has allowed one run. That's it. The totals: 22 1/3 IP, 16 hits, one run, two walks, and 23 strikeouts.

Tonight is Duke Snider bobblehead tonight, and the Hall of Famer will be honored before the game. In addition, the Dodgers will wear Brooklyn caps tonight.
