Colby Lewis rebounded from a rough spring debut to pitch three scoreless innings for the Texas Rangers in a 5-4 loss to the Los Angeles Angels on Tuesday.
Lewis, who didn’t get out of the first inning last week in giving up three homers and six runs to Kansas City, allowed only one hit this time. He walked one and struck out one.
Leonys Martin homered off Angels starter Hector Santiago in the third. Santiago, in his in his second start, breezed through two innings before allowing a one-out single Rougned Odor and the homer by Martin.
C.J. Cron, one of five possible regulars in the Angels’ lineup, hit a two-run homer in the fourth off Joe Beimel.
