Rangers' Lewis pitching perfect game thru 6 innings vs A's
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) Colby Lewis of the Texas Rangers is pitching a perfect game through six innings against the Oakland Athletics.
Lewis has thrown 69 pitches Thursday in Oakland.
Rookie right fielder Nomar Mazara has made the best defensive play for Texas, running down a drive by Max Muncy in the third.
In the sixth, Muncy tried to bunt for a hit with the game scoreless and Lewis threw him out.
Texas took a 1-0 lead in the seventh on a home run by Ian Desmond.
Lewis was 5-0 this season going into the game. The 36-year-old was making his 14th start of the year.
The A's have not been no-hit since four Baltimore pitchers combined to do it in 1991.
Kenny Rogers threw the last no-hitter for Texas, a perfect game against the Angels in 1994.
