Mariners fall to Cleveland 4-1


CLEVELAND, Oh -- Cliff Lee won for the first time in more than a month, allowing one run in his second complete game of the season for a 4-1 victory over the Seattle Mariners on Thursday night.

Lee (5-9) hadn't won since a three-hit shutout against St. Louis on June 14, a game in which he took a no-hitter into the eighth inning.

The reigning AL Cy Young Award winner had lost three straight starts, thanks mostly to a lack of run support. The Indians have scored three runs or less in 11 of Lee's 20 starts.

Grady Sizemore, batting leadoff for the first time since May 16, had two hits and drove in a run.

Garrett Olson (3-3) allowed three runs in 2 2-3 innings in his first start since July 4 for the Mariners, who made four errors.
