|by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer|

Lewis (14-6) saw his ERA rise to 4.38 in the defeat.

|by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer|

Rangers SP Colby Lewis takes complete-game loss
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(8/9/15) In his last start, Rangers righty Colby Lewis surrendered seven runs and won. He pitched a complete game Sunday in Seattle and lost.
Lewis allowed just three earned runs on five hits with one walk and six strikeouts, but fell to 12-5 in the process.
He was doomed by dingers. A Jesus Montero homer in the fourth turned a 2-1 lead into a 3-2 deficit and a Nelson Cruz blast in the sixth placed the cherry on top.
Lewis has five quality starts in his last six outings, but Sunday marked his first defeat after four consecutive winning decisions.
Rangers SP Colby Lewis gives up seven runs, gets win vs. Astros
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(8/3/15) Rangers starter Colby Lewis had a rather bizarre outing on Monday. The right-hander gave up seven runs on 10 hits over six innings, but still came away with his 12th win of the season (and third in a row) in the 12-9 victory over the Astros.
Lewis (12-4) was down early, as he gave up two runs in the top of the first on a Carlos Correa home run. But the Rangers exploded for six runs in the bottom half. Lewis gave up another home run, this time a solo shot to Luis Valbuena in the second inning.
The big blow against Lewis came in the fourth, after the Rangers had just put up a five-spot, when Jason Castro blasted a grand slam to cut the Rangers' lead to 11-7.
Lewis increased his ERA to 4.68 after the rough outing. It's the second time in his pas six starts that he allowed more than three runs--the previous time was a 10-run meltdown on July 5.
|2014 summary: After missing 2013 because of elbow surgery, Colby Lewis returned to make 29 starts for the Rangers in 2014. But he wasn't the pitcher he was before the surgery, the one who came out of nowhere with back-to-back-to-back seasons of mixed-league relevance. His 5.18 ERA ranked second to last among qualifying starting pitchers, and his strikeout rate fell to a mediocre 7.0 per nine innings. |
Playing time status: Lewis didn't have Tommy John surgery in 2013 but a procedure to repair a torn flexor tendon in his elbow. So far, the returns from that procedure among big-leaguers are mixed. Ben Sheets wasn't the same after his, and Lewis may be following the same path.
2015 outlook: The Rangers still see something they like in Lewis, who is the favorite for the fourth spot in the starting rotation heading into the season, and maybe there's another explanation for his struggles. After all, he didn't lose any velocity with the procedure. Still, starting pitcher is deep enough that you shouldn't need to bother with him outside of AL-only leagues.
