Lewis takes aim at AL strikeout lead
With his 12 K's against the Rangers on Saturday, Toronto's Ricky Romero moved into a tie for the American League lead in strikeouts. At 59, he was tied with Tampa Bay's James Shields and the L.A. Angels' Jered Weaver.
Rangers starter Colby Lewis, who began the day 10 strikeouts behind the leaders, notched two in the first inning against the Blue Jays. Lewis has hit the 10-strikeout mark three times in seven starts this season.
