The Phillies entered the 2011 postseason with high hopes behind the strength of their four aces.
The Cardinals got to one of them Sunday in Game 2 of the National League Division Series. Cliff Lee, who was a postseason hero for the Phils in 2009, tied a career high by allowing 12 hits and gave up five runs in six-plus innings in a 5-4 loss to St. Louis, evening the best-of-five series at 1.
The Phils’ offense went into hibernation after the second. Carpenter retired the last four batters he faced and the bullpen retired 11 consecutive batters until Rollins singled to left in the seventh. He was caught stealing to end the inning.
