Colby Lewis felt like he pitched pretty well Sunday, but his throwing error and some singles hurt him. Lewis was also upset with fans after he was booed leaving the game in the sixth inning. Lewis hadn't allowed more than five runs in any start this season before allowing six earned Sunday.
As for the nuggets ...
Sunday marked the first time the Rangers have lost consecutive games at home since the All-Star break.
Colby Lewis is 0-6 with a 4.01 ERA in his last eight starts.
Josh Hamilton has hit safely in 49 of his last 50 home games, and is hitting .430 in that stretch.
Michael Kirkman has allowed just three hits in his 6 1/3 innings with the Rangers.
Since Aug. 19, the Texas bullpen has a 1.37 ERA.
And for those who think the sky is falling, while the Rangers face Kansas City for three without facing Zack Greinke or Luke Hochevar, Oakland heads to New York for four games.
