When Lee was still with Cleveland at the start of 2009, after winning the AL Cy Young Award the previous season, he gave up seven runs on 10 hits over five innings in a loss at Texas. He was traded to the Phillies midway through last season and hadn't pitched in Texas again until Monday night.
Lee had retired 10 batters in a row until the singles in the ninth by Young and Kinsler, who was mired in a 2-for-21 slump. Vladimir Guerrero then flied out deep to center, moving Young to third -- the first Rangers runner to get that far.
Saunders' third homer of the season came in the second, putting the Mariners up 3-0.
Seattle was up 4-0 in the third after Mike Carp reached on an error and scored on Johnson's single.
Left-hander Matt Harrison threw 3 1-3 scoreless innings after relieving Feldman.
NOTES: Chone Figgins was 3 for 4 batting in the ninth spot for Seattle for the first time this season. Figgins, the Mariners' second baseman, also had an impressive defensive play. He made a running, diving catch on Joaquin Arias' soft liner in short right field in the second. ... Despite the loss, Texas is 20-11 at home.
