Phillies Rout Dodgers to Take 2-1 Series Lead
PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Cliff Lee dominated the Dodgers, Ryan Howard and Jayson Werth provided the big swings early and the Philadelphia Phillies cruised past Los Angeles 11-0 Sunday night for a 2-1 lead in the NL championship series.

Lee provided another brilliant playoff start, striking out 10 and allowing only three hits in eight innings.

Howard hustled for a triple and Werth homered as the Phillies took a 6-0 lead in the second inning. Howard has an RBI in all seven of Philadelphia's playoff games this year.

Coming off their most lopsided win in postseason history, the defending World Series champion Phillies play Game 4 Monday night. Joe Blanton starts against the Dodgers' Randy Wolf.
