Twins Can't Sweep Phillies

Cliff Lee allowed two runs in seven strong innings, Ben Revere had four hits and scored the go-ahead run, and the Philadelphia Phillies rallied to beat the Minnesota Twins 3-2 on Thursday night and snap a five-game losing streak.
 
The speedy Revere slid home with nobody out in the eighth, scoring from third base on Jimmy Rollins' chopper. First baseman Justin Morneau was playing in, but his throw was too late to catch Revere - formerly of the Twins.
 
Lee (8-2) gave up only one hit and faced the minimum number of batters through 6 1-3 innings before Joe Mauer walked and Ryan Doumit reached on an infield hit.
 
Morneau lined a two-run double past a diving Revere to give Minnesota a 2-1 lead in the seventh.
 
Pinch-hitter Kevin Frandsen opened the eighth with a double against reliever Jared Burton (0-4) and scored the tying run on Michael Young's single.
