The Rangers could use the good version of Colby Lewis on Wednesday night in Toronto.
Lewis takes the hill on the heels of an extra-inning bullpen meltdown that also featured some base-running blunders and wasted chances by the Rangers' bats. It was an ugly loss following perhaps the best-played game of the year in a 2-1 win over the Blue Jays on Monday night.
The Rangers bullpen has been taxed heavily lately. While the rotation is riding a pretty remarkable streak of going at least five innings in each game this year, they haven't gotten past the sixth much — only three times to be exact.
One of those times was Lewis, and the Rangers could really use a similar outing on Wednesday night to give an overworked, struggling bullpen a breather.
History doesn't bode well for Lewis, as he's 2-3 with a 6.38 ERA in 24 career innings in the Rogers Centre. The Rangers, and their bullpen specifically, need him to break that trend on Wednesday night.
