Rangers Vs. Royals: Colby Lewis Looks To Stay Hot

The Texas Rangers take on the Kansas City Royals on Friday night in Arlington as Colby Lewis looks to even up his record at 5-5.

Lewis pitched poorly to start the season, going 2-3 with a 5.70 ERA in the month of April, walking 11 and striking out 20 in 30 innings. More concerning, Lewis gave up 10 home runs in the month of April alone. May has been much kinder to Lewis, as he's gone 2-2 with a 1.74 ERA, walking only five while striking out 24 in 31 innings. Further, Lewis has only allowed three home runs in May.

Lewis will be opposed by Nate Adcock, who will be making his second start of the season. Adcock has made eight appearances out of the pen in addition to his one start, all in all totaling 21.2 innings pitched. Adcock has allowed 22 hits and issued six walks - and has only struck out 12 batters. His 1.66 ERA appears to be in serious jeopardy tonight against the Rangers.

First pitch is scheduled for 7:05 p.m. CDT.
