Cliff Lee high-fives fans from on-deck circle during 10-strikeout gem

The Phillies' starting rotation had been experiencing some woes before Monday, unable to earn a win in their last 12 outings. Enter: Cliff Lee.

Philaelphia's ace looked as dominant as ever, tossing eight shutout innings and fanning 10 without issuing a walk on the way to a 7-0 win over the Dodgers. Oh, and did we mention that Lee added a single from the plate, just for good measure?

The left-hander was rather pleased with himself and his team's showing, taking a few seconds before his eighth inning at-bat (we told you he was firing) to high-five some young Phils fans from the on-deck circle.

Happy Cliff Lee is our favorite Cliff Lee.
