Cliff Lee put his team back on track today with a gutsy pitching performance amid a still lackluster Cleveland offense. Lee went six and two-thirds innings yielding only 1 run on 4 hits. Lee, notching his first win in as many outings, was just what the team needed to get back to .500 as they go to Los Angeles for a 3 game series.
Lee looked like the pitcher he once was, striking out 4 and walking only 1 batter.
The Indians scored twice in the 7th inning on a fielder’s choice (that should have been an inning-ending double play) and a bases loaded walk to Ryan Garko.
Joe Borowski earned his second save of the young season as the bullpen hung on.

The day belongs to Cliff Lee. He stepped up and gave his team every opportunity to win with a great effort. Congratulations Cliff Lee.
Now, who is going to step up and wake up the offense?
