Rangers P Colby Lewis surrenders three runs in win


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(6/30/2015) Rangers pitcher Colby Lewis picked up his eighth win of the season in Tuesday night's 8-6 win over the Orioles. 

Lewis got the win but gave up five runs — three earned — in the process. This is the fourth game out of his past five that Lewis has allowed three earned runs in a game. Lewis went six innings, gave up six hits and struck out three batters on Tuesday. 

He now has an ERA of 4.13 this season. 


Rangers SP Colby Lewis allows three runs in no-decision


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(6/25/2015) Rangers starting pitcher Colby Lewis was underwhelming against the Rangers on Thursday.

Lewis tossed six innings, allowed five hits and three earned runs. His command was often spotty as he walked three batters but also managed to strike out three others.

"Last two innings, the fifth is what I'm more disappointed in myself," Lewis said, per MLB.com. "I've got to go out there and have a better inning, but I didn't, so it turned on me."

Lewis (7-3) has a 4.10 ERA with 71 strikeouts and 20 walks in 94 1/3 innings this season.


Colby Lewis wins third straight for Rangers


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(6/20/2015) Rangers starter Colby Lewis won his third straight decision, beating the White Sox on Friday. 

Lewis moved to 7-3, allowing a run in eight innings. Lewis surrendered nine hits, including a home run. He didn't walk a batter and struck out seven.

“I just tried to go out there and match [White Sox starter Chris Sale],” Lewis said. “He threw a great game. It’s a big win for us.”

Lewis' next start is Thursday, against Oakland.  


Rangers calling up Anthony Ranaudo, pushing back rotation


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/17/2015) The Rangers will recall Anthony Ranaudo to pitch Thursday against the Dodgers, the team announced Wednesday. Ranaudo is expected to return to Triple-A Round Rock after Thursday's start, per The Dallas Morning News.

Ranuado's promotion means the rest of the rotation is getting pushed back. Colby Lewis will now start Friday's series opener the White Sox and be followed by Nick Martinez and Yovani Gallardo in the three-game series.

Chi Chi Gonzalez, who was slated to start Sunday, will be pushed back to Tuesday against the Athletics.


Rangers SP Colby Lewis posts quality start in win on Saturday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/13/2015) Rangers starter Colby Lewis was solid in his outing against the Twins on Saturday. Lewis went seven innings, giving up three runs on four hits. He walked one and struck out six as he lowered his ERA to 4.37.

All of the runs Lewis (6-3) gave up came in the third inning. He served up a two-run double to Eddie Rosario, and an RBI-double to Joe Mauer for the only damage against him on the afternoon.

Lewis has now gone seven innings in each of his last three starts, allowing a total of eight earned runs over that stretch. He'll look to keep it going in his next start, scheduled for Thursday against the Dodgers in Los Angeles.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Lewis gave up a pair of runs on sacrifice flies in the first and second innings and fell behind further on an RBI double in the fifth, but his offense was able to rally back and take him off the hook for the loss in the seventh.

Lewis owns a 4.42 ERA and 55:16 K:BB ratio in 73 1/3 innings. He's slated to face the Twins at home on Saturday.


Rangers P Colby Lewis bounces back with solid performance


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Lewis, who had a 2.40 ERA on May 11, now has a 4.48 ERA this season. 

His next start is projected for Sunday against the Royals. 


Rangers SP Colby Lewis shelled for nine earned runs Wednesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/27/2015) Rangers starter Colby Lewis had a nightmare of an outing in Wednesday's 12-3 loss to the Indians. In 2 2/3 innings, Lewis gave up 10 runs (9 earned) on 11 hits, all season-highs. He walked one and struck out two, needing 74 pitches to record eight outs.

"He just couldn't get the slider where he wanted it," manager Jeff Banister said, per MLB.com. "Not as sharp. When the secondary stuff for Colby isn't sharp, the location with the fastball has to be at a premium. It just wasn't your usual Colby day."

Lewis (4-3) gave up a solo home run in the second inning and a three run shot as part of an eight-run third inning. 

After a stretch of three consecutive quality starts, the veteran right-hander has now posted three straight clunkers. In his last three starts, Lewis has allowed 26 hits and 19 earned runs.

With Wednesday's performance, his season ERA jumped from 3.49 to 4.70. He'll look to right the ship in his next start, scheduled for Tuesday against the White Sox.

by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/22/2015) Rangers pitcher Colby Lewis added a win to his record even though his performance in Friday's 10-9 victory over the Yankees wasn't his best. 

Lewis gave up five earned runs in 6 2/3 innings of work. Four of those runs came in the fourth inning, with three on a home run from Didi Gregorius. This is the second consecutive game that Lewis, 35, has allowed five earned runs. 

Lewis allowed 12 earned runs in his first seven starts but has given up 10 in his past two. Lewis now has an ERA of 3.49. 

His next start is projected for May 27 against the Indians.

35-year-old Rangers P Colby Lewis showing no signs of age


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/12/2015) Rangers pitcher Colby Lewis has surprised just about everybody during the first month of the season. 

Lewis, 35 years old with a long injury history, is 3-2 with a 2.40 ERA this season. On Monday in a win over the Royals, Lewis only gave up three hits and one run. Lewis' resurgence has been a pleasant surprise for the Rangers, considering he went 10-14 with a 5.18 ERA a year ago.

In 2013, Lewis had a hip resurfacing procedure, which no player had ever returned to the majors from. Two years later, Lewis has not only returned but is entering mid-May in dominant form. 

“I remember talking it over with my wife, and it was either get it done or go home,’’ Lewis said via ESPN.com. “She said go get it done.’’


Rangers SP Colby Lewis stays hot with another strong outing for win


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(5/11/2015) Rangers starter Colby Lewis (3-2) allowed a run on three hits in seven innings Monday for a win over the Royals. He threw exactly 100 pitches and fanned five in the outing.

"Wow, doesn't surprise us really, the competitor that he is," manager Jeff Banister said after the game, per MLB.com. "You can see the look. He talks about how good he feels, the warhorse in the middle of our rotation. You can see the focus in his face, he pours the zone with his fastball and slider, keeps the hitter off-balance and doesn't give in. It's a very nice look how he shows up every night."

Lewis has now allowed just two runs over his last 21 innings (0.86 ERA).

"He looks confident, he looks healthy," third baseman Adrian Beltre said. "He is hitting his spots and his slider has good bite. He is making hitters look bad. What he went through was tough, but he looks healthy, he looks like a guy who really competes out there."

Lewis returns to the mound Saturday for his next start against the Indians.

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Lewis worked efficiently through the first three innings before running into issues in the fourth. Lewis allowed a sacrifice fly to Seth Smith, allowing Robinson Cano to score. Then in the fifth, Lewis surrendered a leadoff home run to Mike Zunino.

"I thought he settled in nicely and pitched a heckuva game," Rangers manager Jeff Banister said to MLB.com. "He made pitches and he mixed pitches. I felt good with the way Colby was throwing."

Brad Miller then tripled in the sixth, driving in Kyle Seager, before getting pulled.

"There wasn't one inning that was easy," Lewis said. "I didn't get any quick innings. I was always working out of the stretch. I was just trying to keep it close like I always do."
