AL RESULTS

Cliff Lee finally gets some support

Reigning Cy Young Award winner wins for the first time in more than a month as Cleveland beats Seattle, 4-1.

at Cleveland 4, Seattle 1: Cliff Lee won for the first time in more than a month, giving up one run in his second complete game of the season. Lee (5-9) hadn't won since a three-hit shutout against St. Louis on June 14, a game in which he took a no-hitter into the eighth inning. The reigning AL Cy Young Award winner had lost three straight starts, thanks mostly to a lack of run support. The Indians have scored three runs or fewer in 11 of Lee's 20 starts. Grady Sizemore, batting leadoff for the first time since May 16, had two hits and drove in a run. Garrett Olson (3-3) gave up three runs in 2 2/3 innings in his first start since July 4 for the Mariners, who made four errors. Lee gave up nine hits, including Ronny Cedeno's solo homer in the fifth inning. He also struck out six and didn't walk a batter. Lee is 8-1 with a 3.35 ERA in 12 career appearances against Seattle.

Angels 6, at Oakland 2: Ervin Santana ended a three-start losing streak, Kendry Morales hit a two-run homer and the Angels won their fourth game in a row.
