Rangers lose in Tampa after rough 8th from Lee

Carlos Pena hit a tiebreaking single during a four-run eighth inning and the Tampa Bay Rays rallied to beat Cliff Lee and the Texas Rangers 6-4 on Monday night in a potential playoff preview.
Lee outlasted David Price in a marquee matchup of All-Star aces
and was given a late lead when Texas scored twice in the top of the
eighth to go up 4-2. But Carl Crawford hit a run-scoring grounder
and Evan Longoria tied it with a single before Pena, just off the
disabled list, made it 5-4.
Ben Zobrist added an RBI single that chased Lee (10-6).
The left-hander allowed six runs, nine hits and one walk while
striking out 10 over 7 2-3 innings. He has lost all three of his
starts against Tampa Bay this season.
