Aaron Cook struck out seven over five innings to outpitch AL Cy Young Award winner Cliff Lee, and the Colorado Rockies beat the Cleveland Indians 5-0 on Wednesday.
Dan Ortmeier had three hits for the Rockies, who scored four runs off Lee in the first three innings.
Lee allowed five hits and four runs _ three earned _ over three innings in his second spring training start. His throwing error gave Colorado an unearned run in the first.
With runners breaking for second and third, Lee threw the ball down the left-field line.
Sidearm reliever Joe Smith, sidelined two weeks by a virus, made his Indians debut. He yielded one hit in a scoreless inning.
