In the first Series game at the new billion-dollar Yankee Stadium, Lee struck out 10 and walked none, improving to 3-0 with an 0.54 ERA this postseason.
Utley hit solo homers off Sabathia in the third and sixth innings. Sabathia allowed four hits in seven innings, and Philadelphia tacked on four runs against the Yankees' bullpen.
