Indians continue chase for division title against Rangers

Jul 21, 2007 - 1:17 PM Cleveland (57-39) at Texas (41-55) 8:35 pm EDT

ARLINGTON, Texas (Ticker) -Cliff Lee hopes to avoid his third straight loss as the Cleveland Indians square off against the Texas Rangers in the third of a four-game series Saturday.

The Indians took the first two games of the series and closed to within one game of the Detroit Tigers in the chase for the American Central Division title.

Grady Sizemore homered to help C.C. Sabathia record his 13th win of the season in Thursday's 7-5 victory and Travis Hafner's blast lifted Cleveland to a 3-2 triumph on Friday.

Lee (5-6, 5.67 ERA) was tagged for seven runs and nine hits with three walks and five strikeouts over 5 1/3 innings in a 11-10 loss to the Chicago White Sox on Monday.

The Rangers will counter with Jamey Wright (3-2, 4.31), who is looking for his third straight victory.

Wright, who spent nearly two months on the disabled list this season, pitched seven scoreless innings in the Rangers' 4-1 triumph over the Oakland Athletics on Monday.
