Colby Lewis done after six innings
Rangers starter Colby Lewis gave way to Mason Tobin after allowing four earned runs in six innings. The Orioles have built a 5-0 lead through seven.
The Rangers' streak of five straight wins by starters will come to an end in Game 1.
Lewis allowed six hits -- including two homers -- and struck out four. He did not allow a run in his final three innings, but the Rangers' bats haven't been able to help him out.
Texas has had the leadoff batter get on base in four of seven innings but has not been able to capitalize. Weatherford's Zach Britton has allowed just three hits and two walks through seven.
