The Philadelphia Phillies lead Game 1 of the World Series 1-0 after three innings.
Cliff Lee, who likes to work fast, has thrown only 40 pitches through three innings. He has allowed two hits and struck out four. Only three Yankees have managed to get the ball out of the infield.
CC Sabathia has looked a little ragged, throwing 58 pitches in his first three innings. He left the bases loaded in the first inning. Chase Utley homered in the third, finishing a nine-pitch at-bat with a shot into the right-field stands. Sabathia missed with a fastball that he wanted inside.
It’s a cold, raw night in the Bronx, but the rain has let up.
