Rangers SP Colby Lewis quiets Yankees' bats in 5-2 win
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(7/30/15) Rangers right-hander Colby Lewis earned his 11th win of the season in the 5-2 win over the Yankees on Wednesday. Lewis allowed two runs on seven hits over six innings. He struck out five and did not issue a walk, throwing 71 of his 102 pitches for strikes.
Lewis (11-4, 4.42 ERA) gave up a solo home run to Carlos Beltran in the second inning before allowing another run to score in the seventh. Otherwise, Lewis was on top of his game against a tough lineup.
Since Lewis had a 10-run explosion on July 5, he has allowed a total of nine runs over 28 innings in his last four starts.

Lewis allowed two runs on five hits over 7 2/3 innings. It was his longest outing since June 19 and the third straight start where he's allowed two runs or fewer.
Lewis struck out a season-high nine batters.
Rangers SP Colby Lewis impresses during win over Astros
|by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer|
|(7/18/15) Rangers starting pitcher Colby Lewis enjoyed one of his best outings of the season on Saturday against the Astros.
Lewis allowed just two runs on four hits in 7 1/3 innings of work. His command was crisp as he struck out seven batters and didn't allow a walk.
Lewis improved to 9-4 on the season with the win. He now has a 4.63 ERA with 87 strikeouts and 24 walks in 118 2/3 innings this season.
Rangers SP Colby Lewis rebounds with strong effort Saturday
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(7/12/15) Granted, Rangers starter Colby Lewis could not perform any worse Saturday against San Diego than he did in his previous outing.
But his best start since late June will make him forget about that 10-runs-in-four-innings disaster much easier.
Lewis allowed just three runs on five hits in seven innings to San Diego and would have won had closer Shawn Tolleson not blown it in the ninth. He walked two and fanned five.
The right-hander gave up a two-run homer to Matt Kemp in the third inning, then settled down. He surrendered only an RBI single to Justin Upton the rest of the way.
Rangers SP Colby Lewis gets rocked for 10 runs in loss
|by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer|
|(7/5/15) Rangers starting pitcher Colby Lewis got completely obliterrated by the Angels on Sunday.
Lewis allowed 10 runs on 12 hits in just four innings while picking up his fourth loss of the season. The outing was Lewis' second shortest of the season. Back in late May, he managed to get through just 2 2/3 innings before being pulled after allowing nine runs.
Lewis (8-4) has a 4.83 ERA with 75 strikeouts and 22 walks in 104 1/3 innings this season.
|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.
