Lewis leads Rangers past Brewers
June, 13, 2010
What more can you say about Colby Lewis' performace Sunday in Milwaukee? He did it all.
Eight incredible innings of work, only sacrificing three hits and tying a career high with 10 strikeouts. Prince Fielder was the only player that could put wood to Lewis' stuff. The first baseman accounted for all the Brewers' offense with two solo home runs.
In the sixth inning, Lewis collected the first hit by a Rangers pitcher in two years when he drove in two runs after a great at-bat against Brewers ace and Fort Worth native Yovani Gallardo. He then became the first starting pitcher to have a multi-hit game in five years when he ripped a pitch to right field in the eight inning.
Michael Young moves one hit away from tying Pudge Rodriguez's record after a double in the fourth. He would later score off a Josh Hamilton home run. Hamilton finished the game with two hits, three RBI's and a walk.
