CLEVELAND -- After another victory under his belt, Cleveland Indians starter Cliff Lee slipped on a T-shirt that said: Ace of Spades. Lee (22-2) won his 11th consecutive decision, leading the Indians over the Kansas City Royals, 12-5, Friday night. Lee's win streak is the longest by an Indians pitcher since Gaylord Perry won 15 consecutive decisions in 1974.
