The Texas Rangers beat the Houston Astros today 6-1, to take two out of their three games at Minute Maid Park.  The win also puts the Rangers in the driver’s seat as far as their quest to hold on to the Silver Boot Trophy.

The first inning proved to be the decisive inning for today’s game.  The Rangers jumped out to a 5-0 lead, including a two-run RBI single from starting pitcher Colby Lewis, en route to his 8 inning, 1-run, win.

Lewis improved his record to (4-3) as he gave up 4 hits, 1 walk and struck out 6 in his 8 innings of work. “Having things not go my way my last few times out, I wanted to bounce back and go deep in the game,” Lewis told MLB.com. “Jumping out to a lead like that, my job was to throw strikes and force the issue. It made it a lot easier.”

Lewis coasted through 8 innings and the Astros only run came from a Jed Lowrie solo homer in the bottom of the 9th inning that chased Lewis from the game.

Astros starter Jordan Lyles pitched 5 innings in the loss.

The Rangers on Monday start a series at the Seattle Mariners.
