Lewis gets first 10-K game since surgeries

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Every time Colby Lewis takes the mound for the Texas Rangers, it is a testament of his will to come back from surgeries on his elbow and hip over the past two years. And even though Lewis finished on the losing end of Saturday night’s 5-4 score against the Los Angeles Angels, the 35-year-old registered a landmark 10 strikeouts against the new AL West co-leaders. It marks the 11th time in Lewis' career to reach double digits in strikeouts but the first time since 2012 -- before the surgeries that caused him to miss the entire 2013 season.

Rapid Reaction: Rays 7, Rangers 0

  ARLINGTON, Texas – Temperatures at Globe Life Park didn’t appear unreasonably high Monday night. It was 92 degrees at game time and Texas Rangers starter Colby Lewis wore the look of a man pitching in a desert. Lewis didn’t have much to offer against the Tampa Bay Rays and was lifted after just five innings -- on the heels of his first complete game of the season, in his previous start. While Lewis struggled with his control and velocity, his teammates were a lifeless bunch in the 7-0 loss to the Rays.

Rangers 16, White Sox 0: Adam Dunn pitched

Colby Lewis tossed a shutout, while John Danks did not Adam Dunn pitched. What were the circumstances that led to Adam Dunn pitching? Well ... The White Sox fell behind 3-0 in the time it took to read "the White Sox fell behind 3-0." John Danks had nothing from the get-go, and was knocked out after giving up four homers over 4⅔ innings. The other numbers in his line were ugly, too (eight hits, nine runs, five walks). Colby Lewis was never challenged during his six-hit shutout. He gave up a few deepish fly balls, but only one White Sox reached third base all night, and that was with two...

Colby Lewis continues his audition

The pitching rotation for the Texas Rangers in 2015 is Yu Darvish and the return of Derek Holland. There are too many ifs after that. What about this young pitcher? What if this pitcher comes back from injury? Who’s out there in free agency? And there’s Colby Lewis. He turned 35 over the weekend and spent the day in Cleveland most likely celebrating quietly and thinking about his future. The next two months of the season are auditions for Lewis and he takes the stage Tuesday night against the Chicago White Sox.

Yankees bats go silent against Colby Lewis in 3-2 loss to Rangers
