ARLINGTON, Texas -- The Rangers open a four-game set at Rangers Ballpark tonight at 7:05, with RHP Colby Lewis taking on RHP Kyle Drabek.

Lewis (1-2, 5.82 ERA): Not the start Lewis had envisioned. He returned from missing a start for the birth of his second child, a girl, and was roughed up for five runs (four earned) in five innings in as loss to the Angels. … Lewis is the only member of the regular rotation not to throw more than six innings in a start this season. … Went 1-1 with 4.50 in two starts against the Jays last season.

Drabek (1-0, 3.00 ERA): The 23-year-old native of Victoria, Texas, has three no-decisions in four starts. … He's given up more than two earned runs just once. … Has struggled with command, issuing 15 walks in 24 innings. He does have 19 strikeouts.

Hitters: Ranger hitters have yet to face Drabek. … Jose Bautista is 2-for-4 with a homer against Lewis. … Rajai Davis is 6-for-16, Corey Patterson is 2-for-3 and Aaron Hill 0-for-6 with five strikeouts.
