Colby Lewis, Rangers Look To Win Rubber Match Against Indians

Colby Lewis takes the mound on Sunday night for the Rangers as they play host to the Cleveland Indians in the rubber match of a three-game series. 

The Rangers could have been in a position to sweep the Indians on Sunday night, but a blown save by Neftali Feliz cost the Rangers the win on Saturday, as the Indians scored four runs in the ninth - with three runs being charged to Feliz.

Lewis gets the start for the Rangers, looking for his 11th win of the season. Lewis' numbers have been very good this year, as he owns a 1.24 WHIP, .245 BAA and 4.14 ERA headed into Sunday night's contest. Lewis has been undone by the longball this year, though, surrendering 27 in his 22 starts this season. 

Texas remains in first place despite the loss on Saturday night, thanks to former Ranger farmhand Blake Beaven and the Mariners defeating the Angels. The Rangers remain one game up on the Angels headed into Sunday's games for both teams.

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