CBSSports.com wire reports

TORONTO -- Cliff Lee's scoreless innings streak has ended at 34 after the Philadelphia Phillies' left-hander gave up a run against the Toronto Blue Jays on Sunday.

Lee, who came in having pitched four consecutive shutouts and going 5-0 with an 0.21 ERA in June, kept the Blue Jays off the board for the first two innings.

His streak ended when Rajai Davis tripled to lead off the third and scored on John McDonald's grounder to shortstop.

Lee's streak is the second longest in Phillies history. Grover Cleveland Alexander threw 41 consecutive shutout innings in 1911.
