Rangers Vs. Astros Final Score: Colby Lewis Leads Texas To 6-1 Win

The Texas Rangers jumped out to an early lead and got a solid pitching performance from Colby Lewis to defeat Houston 6-1 Sunday.

Texas wasted little time getting to Houston starter Jordan Lyles. Josh Hamilton started the scoring in the first inning with a sacrifice fly. Nelson Cruz followed later with a two run single that made the score 3-0. Then pitcher Colby Lewis helped himself with a two run single of his own to increase the Texas lead to 5-0.

The Rangers extended the lead to 6-0 in the fifth when Daniel Murphy hit his fifth home run of the season. The Astros would score their only run of the game in the ninth on a home run by Jed Lowrie.

Hamilton, Lewis, Cruz, Elvis Andrus and Michael Young all finished with two hits in the game. Lewis pitched eight innings while allowing four hits and one run to snap a personal three-game losing streak. Lyles takes the loss after allowing six runs and nine hits in five innings for work.
