Phillies' Lee hit hard in five-run fourth

Cliff Lee gave up home runs to Juan Rivera and Edwin Encarnacion in a five-run fourth inning, and the Philadelphia Phillies lost to the Toronto Blue Jays 7-6 Thursday.

Lee had only allowed one baserunner to reach second base in the first three innings. Lee allowed five runs — three earned — and seven hits in four innings. He has allowed six runs earned runs in his last two starts.

Rivera, Adam Lind and John McDonald had three hits apiece for the Jays.

Philadelphia shortstop prospect Freddy Galvis hit a two-out, two-run home run to bring his team within a run in the bottom of the ninth. Shane Victorino hit a two-run homer, his first of the spring, in the first inning.
