Phillies left-hander Cliff Lee was still in search of his first win of 2012 entering Sunday's start against the Red Sox. Five starts is the longest Lee (0-1, 1.95 ERA) has gone winless to start a season in his career.
With a win Sunday, the Phillies would win their fourth series in a row.
Josh Beckett, who started Sunday for Boston, has hit two of his three career home runs against the Phillies at Citizens Bank Park. On the mound, he's 8-5 with a 4.18 ERA in 20 games (18 starts) against Philadelphia.
