Lewis (8-4) gave up three runs on five hits over seven innings in a no-decision against the Padres on Saturday, while walking two and striking out five.

Lewis was in line for the win until closer Shawn Tolleson blew a 5-3 lead in the ninth inning. The right-hander has been fortunate to accrue an 8-4 record despite his 4.77 ERA, but his 3.96 FIP indicates that there is a strong chance of improvement on the horizon. Lewis has allowed at least three earned runs in six of his last seven starts, but holds a 3-1 record in that span thanks to excellent run support from the Rangers' offense. The 35-year-old will need to make improvements in the second half or his poor form of late will start to manifest itself in losses.

The veteran snapped a streak of six consecutive quality starts with this terrible outing, which raised his ERA to 4.83 on the season. The Cobra will look to get back on track Saturday against the Padres.

Lewis threw his second consecutive quality start Sunday against the Royals, allowing three runs over seven innings with five strikeouts and just one walk. He did not factor into the decision.

The veteran allowed some early baserunners, but was able to escape after only allowing a pair of sacrifice flies and really limited the Royals offense after the second inning. Lewis has bounced back nicely from three outings during which he allowed a total of 19 runs, and will look to keep things moving in the right direction against the Twins at home Saturday.

Lewis gave up two runs on six hits while issuing zero walks and striking out four over seven innings Tuesday against the White Sox.

He threw 71 of his 94 pitches for strikes and the Rangers were in control all night, hanging 15 runs on Chicago, which made things relatively stress-free for Lewis. This was a great bounce-back game for the veteran righty after he gave up nine runs in his last outing. Lewis has been feast or famine all season, but has generally been pretty reliable at home where he has a 3.34 ERA and 29 strikeouts in 32.1 innings (five starts) so far in 2015.

Lewis (4-3) was bombed for 10 runs (nine earned) on 11 hits in 2.2 innings Wednesday against the Indians.

Lewis had a good stretch of starts for a while there in late April and early May, but he's now been tagged for 21 runs (19 earned) in his last three starts, so it's awfully hard to trust Lewis in most fantasy formats. He'll next get the White Sox on Tuesday.
