Colby Lewis pitched very well today. He went six innings striking out nine, walking only one, and surrendering just two earned runs. His nine strikeouts tied Nolan Ryan for the Rangers Opening Day strikeout record. Alexi Ogando will take over for the Rangers in the top of the seventh.
In the sixth inning, Adam Dunn crushed a solo home run into the upper deck porch in right-center to cut the Rangers' lead in half. That home run was Dunn's eighth Opening Day home run and ties a Major League record. He's now 1-2 with a walk, home run and strikeout.
John Danks has settled in and pitched well through six. Allowing three runs while striking out six and has yet to walk a batter.
