Rangers SP Colby Lewis loses battle of aces


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(8/27/2015) Rangers starter Colby Lewis faced off against Toronto's David Price in a battle of top-line pitchers, and Lewis came out on the wrong end of a loss to the Blue Jays on Wednesday, undone by a big sixth inning. 

Lewis entered the game 6-1 in his last seven starts, but he lasted only five innings against the explosive Jays. He allowed five runs on six hits, including two home runs.

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
(8/9/2015) In his last start, Rangers righty Colby Lewis surrendered seven runs and won. He pitched a complete game Sunday in Seattle and lost.

Go figure.

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
(8/3/2015) 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.

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/30/2015) 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.


Rangers' Colby Lewis wins 10th game of year


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Lewis struck out a season-high nine batters. 


Rangers SP Colby Lewis impresses during win over Astros


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(7/18/2015) Rangers starting pitcher Colby Lewis enjoyed one of his best outings of the season on Saturday against the Astros.

Rangers SP Colby Lewis rebounds with strong effort Saturday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/12/2015) 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
(7/5/2015) 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.


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.”

Rangers calling up Anthony Ranaudo, pushing back rotation


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

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.


Rangers' Colby Lewis strikes out five in no-decision Sunday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/7/2015) Rangers pitcher Colby Lewis didn't factor into the decision on Sunday, giving up three earned runs on eight hits and one walk in seven innings while striking out five in his team's 4-3 loss to the Royals.

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 bounced back from three sub-par to poor performances in a row and put up a solid outing. He gave up six hits, struck out four batters and walked none. Lewis did allow a home run, however, which makes it four hit off of him in the past three games. 

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.

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.
