Phillies 9, Braves 0

PHILADELPHIA — Cliff Lee pitched a five-hitter for his sixth shutout of the season, leading Philadelphia. Lee, who fell one out shy of a shutout in his previous start at Cincinnati, has won his past seven starts and hasn't allowed a run in five of those games. The Phillies increased their lead to 81/2 games over Atlanta and reduced their magic number for clinching their fifth straight NL East title to 16 with 25 games remaining.
