Lee performs, Mariners still fall to Rays

Posted: Updated:

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - (AP) Sean Rodriguez delivered a seventh-inning double and Gabe Kapler added an eight-inning sacrifice fly as the Tampa Bay Rays overcame a frustrating afternoon against Cliff Lee to rally for a 2-1 victory over the Seattle Mariners on Sunday. Lee took a 1-0 lead into the seventh, limiting the team with baseball's best record to doubles by B.J. Upton and Willy Aybar up to that point. Upton doubled again with one out in the seventh, then scored when Rodriguez followed with his hit off the right-centerfield wall. Carl Crawford tripled into the left field corner, just beyond the reach of Michael Saunders, and scored on Kapler's sacrifice fly. Dan Wheeler (2-0) retired the only two batters he faced to get the win. Rafael Soriano got the final three outs for his 10th save in 10 opportunities.
