Lewis struck out a pair and allowed four runs on six hits over six innings in a loss to the Royals on Friday night.

Yordano Ventura was very sharp for the Royals on Friday night, erasing Lewis' chances for the victory in a game where he failed to turn in a quality start. The Rangers will continue to give the ball to Lewis every fifth day as they play out the string, while his next outing is scheduled for Wednesday against the Mariners at Safeco Field.

Lewis fanned 10, but allowed five runs on 10 hits over six innings against the Angels on Saturday night in a losing effort.

The five runs were the most that Lewis has allowed in a start since coughed up 11 against the Halos in his final start before the All-Star break on July 10. Lewis is lined up to face the Royals on Friday in Arlington for his next scheduled start.

Lewis was hurt by subpar defense Monday, allowing five runs�two earned�in five innings Monday.

Lewis has nobody to blame but himself, committing an error and walking four in the losing effort. The veteran had been coming off three strong starts before Monday. Lewis sees the Angels this weekend.

Lewis pitched a complete-game shutout against the White Sox on Tuesday, giving up just six hits and one walk, while striking out seven batters to improve to 8-8 on the year.

In a season that has gone terribly wrong, it was nice to see Lewis pitch his best game of the year Tuesday. Lewis still has an ERA (5.50) well north of five and an unsightly 1.65 WHIP, although to his credit, he has now tossed three-straight quality starts. His next start is scheduled for Monday at home against Tampa Bay.

Colby Lewis yielded two runs in seven innings Wednesday in a win over the Yankees.

It looked like this would be a high-scoring game after Brett Gardner led off the first with a homer and the Rangers came through with three in the bottom of the inning against Hiroki Kuroda, but it ended up being a 3-2 Rangers win. Lewis allowed just four hits, two of them being solo shots (the other belonged to Jacoby Ellsbury). It was Lewis's first win since July 5, but he has pitched decently in three straight starts after giving up 13 runs in his final outing before the break. He probably still doesn't have much trade value right now should the Rangers decide to cash him in.

Colby Lewis fell to 6-7 after allowing two runs over five innings Saturday against the Blue Jays.

Both runs scored in the fourth inning. Lewis gave up eight hits and three walks (one of them intentional), so needed 106 pitches just to get out of the fifth inning. Still, he'll take it after he was pounded for 11 runs over just 2 1/3 innings in his final start before the All-Star break. Lewis will bring an ugly 6.37 ERA into a start against the Yankees next week at Yankee Stadium. He remains a poor bet in fantasy leagues.

Colby Lewis was demolished by the Angels' lineup on Thursday, allowing 13 runs (11 earned) in 2 1/3 innings, resulting in a loss.

Lewis entered the start with a 5.51 ERA, which was ugly enough, but it took a serious beating on Thursday. The right-hander surrendered 13 hits and struck out only one, but at least he didn't issue a walk. Lewis, tattered, heads into the All-Star break with a 6.54 ERA, a 1.82 WHIP, and a 73/26 K/BB ratio.

Colby Lewis held the Mets to three runs -- two earned -- over seven innings Saturday in a Rangers win.

Lewis wasn't exactly steady, but he didn't walk a batter and worked well around eight New York hits. The right-hander struck out seven. He'll take a 6-5 record, 5.51 ERA, and 1.77 WHIP into his next scheduled outing at home against the Angels. The Rangers have won just three out of their last 17 games.

Colby Lewis dodged bullets for most of the night until a five-run seventh inning saddled him with a loss against the Tigers on Tuesday.

Lewis was responsible for three of the five runs in the frame, as he allowed four runs in total over his 6 1/3 innings of work. The loss was his first in the month of June, but that was due more to stellar run support than anything Lewis was doing on the mound. The right-hander has a 5.94 ERA and 1.82 WHIP through 13 starts, and he remains a non-factor outside of deep AL-only leagues.

Colby Lewis allowed five runs on 10 hits over five-plus innings in a 14-8 triumph over the A's on Monday.

Lewis wasn't exactly impressive -- striking out two and walking three -- but he really didn't have to do much to earn the victory outside of watching Drew Pomeranz's implosion from the dugout. He managed to raise his .336 opponent's batting average, which would be the worst mark in the majors if Lewis had pitched enough innings to qualify. The veteran has scuffled throughout the season, but he's never struggled against Oakland, against whom he entered 5-1 with a 2.69 ERA in his last nine outings. Lewis, now 5-4 with a 5.97 ERA, gets the Angels on Sunday.
