When we look back at Cliff Lee's 2012 season, two themes will stand out: a glaring lack of run support and quick, violent shifts from dominance to distress.

Lee again looked brilliant for an extended period of time Saturday night – he retired 12 batters in a row from the second inning through the fifth – but he was greeted in the sixth inning with an infield single by Jon Jay, an Allen Craig double off the top of the right field wall and a three-run homer by Matt Holliday.
