Texas Rangers pitcher Colby Lewis did not have it tonight. In fact Lewis put up one of the worst pitching lines you will see this season.
In 2 1/3 innings of work the 34-year-old Lewis allowed 13 runs – 11 earned – on 13 hits while striking out just one batter.
Lewis went seven innings allowing three runs – two earned – in his last start on Saturday against the New York Mets.
Perhaps the craziest stat is that Lewis has not issued a walk in his last four games.
Lewis entered the game with a 5.51 ERA which has ballooned to 6.54.
Here is my favorite tweet about Lewis’ awful night.
Feel bad for Colby Lewis. The kind of pitching effort that causes one to throw the controller and restart the PS4. pic.twitter.com/8hozY7UpX2

It would not be a surprise at all if the Rangers cut ties with Lewis after Thursday’s game. He originally signed a minor league deal with the team.
