Ben Zobrist ends Cliff Lee's shutout in 7th
By Jeff Caplan
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Rays right-fielder Ben Zobrist just ended Cliff Lee's shutout in the bottom of the seventh. He tagged a 1-0 pitch to right field for Tampa's first run off Lee and its first hit since a lead-off double in the second inning.
Lee is approaching 100 pitches and the home run sparked the Rangers bullpen into action for the first time today.
Lee has allowed the one run on five hits. He has 10 strikeouts, a new club postseason record.
