SURPRISE, ARIZ. (AP) - Cliff Lee was just trying to locate his fastballs. The Texas Rangers had no trouble finding them.

The reigning Cy Young winner gave up 10 runs, nine earned, on 11 hits in 2 2-3 innings during an 11-5 loss to the Texas Rangers on Tuesday.

The Rangers opened the game with three straight hits and had a four-run first inning. The Rangers added six runs in the third.

Kerry Wood was one of five Indians relievers to hold the Rangers to two hits over the final 5 1-3 innings.
