SAN FRANCISCO — Cliff Lee shut down the Giants once again with eight strong innings, Michael Young hit a two-run double among his three hits, and the Philadelphia Phillies stopped San Francisco's season-best six-game winning streak with a 6-2 victory Monday night.

Domonic Brown hit a solo home run and Delmon Young and Jimmy Rollins each added sacrifice flies as the Phillies began a seven-game trip.

Lee (3-2) outpitched fellow southpaw Madison Bumgarner and kept intact his perfect career regular-season record against the Giants.

Hunter Pence hit a solo homer, double and single against his former club. His sixth homer of the season, in the second inning, snapped a 21-inning scoreless stretch by Lee against San Francisco.
