Colby Lewis comes up short for the Texas Rangers


After being roughed up by the Los Angeles Angels again Colby Lewis was again looking to bounce back.  Last night on the mound Lewis was aiming for another good outing and his 11th win of the season.

On one note if Lewis was able to earn his 11th win of the season then he would have the most wins in the club.  But, the offense came up a bit short.  Colby Lewis bounced back just like he’s done over and over again this season.  He’s continued to impress and make a case to bring him back next season as possibly the 4th or 5th starter.

Last night Lewis again went deep in the game at 7.0 innings and recorded 7 strikeouts, which is the most he’s had in a game since July.  He only allowed 6 hits and one earned run, but it wasn’t enough to earn the win.  The recently hot Texas Rangers offense was quiet last night until the 9th when Adrian Beltre hit a walk-off home run to give Neftali Feliz the win.

It was the last time Lewis will pitch this season, but hopefully not the last a Ranger.  The offseason is quickly approaching with just 3 games in the season.  The focus will quickly turn to planning for 2015 and hopefully those plans include Colby Lewis.
