CLEVELAND (AP) - Cliff Lee bounced back from his only poor
outing this season and Ben Francisco hit a three-run homer to help
Cleveland snap its seven-game losing streak with a 5-2 win over the
Texas Rangers on Saturday night.
Lee (7-1), was not as sharp as he when he compiled an 0.67 ERA
and 6-0 record in his first seven starts.
Francisco, robbed of a three-run homer by an umpire's blown call
Friday night, left nothing to chance by hitting a 2-2 pitch from
Scott Feldman (1-2) well over the wall in left for his second homer
to put Cleveland ahead 4-2 in the third inning. On Friday, he hit a
ball that TV replays showed cleared the wall, but the umpires ruled
it in play and Francisco got only an RBI double.
