Now, that is the way to finish spring training.

One day after Roy Halladay sputtered in his final exhibition tuneup, the Phillies’ other former Cy Young Award winner was encouragingly sharp.

“Felt good,” Cliff Lee said after four strong innings. “Spring training is over, and it’s time to get ready for the real games.

“This is my last chance to get ready for the season, and I wanted to approach it more like a real game. … You always want to have good outings no matter when it is, but you definitely want to finish the spring with a good outing.”

Lee pitched four shutout innings against the Blue Jays, striking out five and allowing just one hit in the Phils’ On-Deck Series exhibition game at Citizens Bank Park, a 1-0 loss Friday evening.

Although much more scrutiny had been placed on Halladay’s spring struggles, Lee’s Grapefruit League numbers were almost as ominous.

In his first five spring training appearances, Lee allowed 24 hits and 11 earned runs in 16 2/3 innings for a 5.94 ERA, although his strikeout-to-walk ratio – 19 to 4 – was impressive.
