    Colby Lewis pitched seven strong innings to help the Texas Rangers beat the Detroit Tigers 2-0 Friday night.

    Lewis (14-5) allowed six hits and a walk, but the Rangers defense turned three double plays and threw out another runner at the plate.

    Shawn Tolleson pitched the ninth for his 24th save, despite allowing Miguel Cabrera's third double of the game.

    The game was delayed for several minutes in the eighth inning after a female fan seated in the first row behind the Tigers dugout was hit by a line drive off the bat of Anthony Gose.

    After lengthy attention from three paramedics, she was taken out of the stadium on a stretcher, wearing a neck brace, but appeared to be conscious and speaking.

    Justin Verlander (1-6) allowed two runs -- one earned -- on four hits and a walk in seven innings.
