Five-run first sinks Lee
Rangers 8, Indians 5
Cliff Lee allowed seven runs -- five in the first inning -- in 6 2/3 innings. (Matt Slocum/AP)
 Sizemore's homer
 Lee's postgame comments
The inconsistency that has plagued Cliff Lee this season was on display again on Saturday, when the Indians lefty gave up five runs in the first inning and then settled down to allow just two hits through the next 5 2/3. The Indians rallied for four runs, including Grady Sizemore's 17th home run of the season, to pull within a run, but could not catch the Rangers, who pulled away in the seventh.
