The last time Colby Lewis took the mound for the Rangers, he was beat around like a red headed step child by the Detroit Tigers. On Saturday afternoon, Lewis will look to rebound as the Rangers continue their series in Minnesota against the Twins.
Lewis started on Monday for the Rangers at home in Arlington against the Tigers. Lewis couldn't escape the fourth inning, lasting just three and a third innings, giving up nine earned runs on 10 hits and a walk. Lewis allowed four home runs in the brief start as well.
The poor outing moved Lewis' ERA up nearly a whole run from 3.48 to 4.37.
Lewis will be opposed by Scott Baker for the Twins. Baker owns only a 3-4 record, but has pitched better than the losing record indicates. Baker has struck out 71 in 74.2 innings to go along with a 3.86 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and .259 batting average against.
First pitch is scheduled for 3:10 p.m. CDT as the Rangers look to make it two in a row against the Twins.
