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.

Colby Lewis allowed three runs on seven hits over five innings and was fortunate to escape with a no-decision against the Marlins on Tuesday.

Lewis was in trouble for much of the night, as he walked four to go along with his seven hits allowed. But the Marlins largely failed to take advantage, saving Lewis from earning his fifth loss of the season. Lewis still owns an ugly 5.74 ERA and 1.81 WHIP to go with his 4-4 mark. Things don't get any easier for Lewis on Monday when he takes on the Athletics in Oakland.

Colby Lewis struggled and took the no-decision, allowing five runs in five innings as the Rangers defeated the Orioles 8-6 on Thursday.

Lewis allowed five-plus runs for the fourth time in 10 starts this season. He surrendered seven hits -- including a two-run home run to Nick Markakis -- walked two and struck out four in the effort. Lewis carries an unsavory 5.77 ERA and 1.77 WHIP, but can deflate both with a solid outing in his next start at home against the Marlins.

Colby Lewis was hit hard in a losing effort against the Nationals on Friday, allowing five runs on nine hits over his 5 2/3 innings of work.

The veteran right-hander walked a pair and punched out five. The big blow against him came in the fourth inning when Ian Desmond belted a three-run homer to put the Nationals on top for good. He has struggled since returning from the disabled list, posting a 5.44 ERA and 1.77 WHIP through his first 48 innings on the season. He'll look to turn things around on Thursday when he takes on the Orioles.

Colby Lewis allowed five runs on nine hits over six innings in a loss to the Mariners on Tuesday.

Lewis also walked three in the game. It was a disappointing effort after he tossed 5 2/3 innings of shutout ball against the Astros his last time out. Lewis did strike out six in his six innings of work, the lone bright spot of the night. He takes a 5.40 ERA and 1.75 WHIP into another tough test Sunday at the Tigers.

Colby Lewis blanked the Astros for 5 2/3 innings, striking out eight, in a win over the Astros on Monday.

Lewis rebounded nicely from a drubbing at the hands of the Rockies last Wednesday. Of course, this was a far easier assignment. Lewis managed to hold the Astros scoreless despite giving up seven hits, including a double and a triple. He also walked two. It helped the Astros were just 1-for-3 in steal attempts against him. Lewis isn't recommended in AL-only leagues with the Jays next on the schedule.

Colby Lewis was the latest starter roughed up by the Rockies on Wednesday, giving up seven runs and 12 hits in 3 2/3 innings.

Lewis wasn't going deep into games, but he was pretty solid in his four previous starts for the Rangers. Getting lit up by the game's hottest offense probably won't hurt his standing overly much. He will need to fare quite a bit better next time out against the Astros, though.

Colby Lewis allowing two runs in 5 2/3 innings Friday in the Rangers' 5-2 win over the Angels.

Lewis still hasn't lasted six innings in any of his four starts, but he has managed six strikeouts in each of his last two outings and his ERA is down to 4.26. He's looking like an option in AL-only leagues now, though his home start against the Rockies next week isn't a great matchup.

Colby Lewis pitched five innings and allowed three runs Saturday in a no-decision versus the Mariners.

Lewis gave up homers to Michael Saunders and Kyle Seager before being lifted. He struck out six, which seems like a good sign. His stuff isn't quite what it was before shoulder surgery, so the question is whether he'll miss enough bats to remains a useful big-league starter. We wouldn't want him active in AL-only leagues just yet.
