ARLINGTON, Texas - Cliff Lee threw a seven-hitter to help the Seattle Mariners snap a three-game losing streak with a 4-2 victory over the Texas Rangers on Monday night.

Lee (4-2) struck out seven and walked none, and didn't allow a run until Josh Hamilton's one-out RBI single in the ninth, when Michael Young and Ian Kinsler had consecutive singles to start the inning. Another run came home on a fielder's choice grounder.

It was the 15th career complete game for Lee and second in his eight starts since the Mariners acquired him from Philadelphia last winter.

Michael Saunders hit a three-run home run for Seattle, and Rob Johnson had an RBI single off Scott Feldman (3-6).
