Colby Lewis was well aware of the perfect game he had going into the sixth inning. After all, he said it's difficult for a pitcher not to know he's only thrown out of his windup delivery.
The perfect game bid came to an end with one-out in the sixth when Aaron Hill lined an 0-2 slider to left for a single. Lewis said it was his fault to give up that hit, leaving it too much in the zone.
Regardless, Lewis still turned in an impressive outing. He went the distance, allowing one run on four hits with one walk and seven strikeouts. It was his second straight complete-game, the first time he's accomplished that in his career.
Offensively, the Rangers had six consecutive two-out hits in what turned out to be a five-run sixth. Here are a few postgame notes:
* David Murphy went 3 for 5 with a two-run homer in the sixth. He entered the game 1 for his last 12.
* Ian Kinsler also went 3 for 5 with a double, run scored and RBI. It was his major league-leading 47th run scored.
* At Double A Frisco, Roy Oswalt went 3 1/3 innings, allowing three runs on five hits with two walks and four strikeouts. He threw 85 pitches, 55 for strikes.
