Rangers Use Longball, Lewis To Get Back In Series

Colby Lewis and the Texas Rangers beat the San Francisco Giants last night, 4-2, in Arlington to cut the SF's lead in the World Series to 2-games-to-1.

Lewis allowed five hits in 7-2/3 innings and struck out six. Tow of the hits were solo homers surrendered to Cody Ross and Andres Torres.

They were more than offset by
Mitch Moreland, who hit a second inning three-run homer, and Josh Hamilton, who added a blast in the fifth frame. Both bombs were served up by Jonathan Sanchez.

A reclamation project who pitched in Japan for a couple of seasons, Lewis has beaten the Yankees twice, won three games, and compiled an ERA of 1.71 in four playoff starts.

Tommy Hunter takes on Madison Bumgarner in Game 4 tonight.
