Lee dominant in Rangers sweep of Yankees

Cliff Lee allowed two hits while pitching into the ninth inning in his return from a back injury and Julio Borbon beat out a drag bunt for a go-ahead single, carrying the Texas Rangers to a 4-1 victory over the New York Yankees and a sweep of the series between division leaders.
Lee (11-8) didn't give up a hit for 5 1-3 innings, facing the
minimum in that stretch. Both hits and the lone run came in the
sixth inning. He retired the side in order in the seventh and
eighth innings, then was pulled after walking Derek Jeter opening
the ninth.
Neftali Perez struck out the next three batters for his 36th
save in 39 chances, completing the first three-game sweep of the
Yankees this year.
