Colby Lewis Pulled Due to Cramping in Tricep

Texas Rangers starter Colby Lewis left his start against Cincinnati after five innings Tuesday night because of a cramping in his right arm.

The 36-year-old allowed three of the first four hitters to reach base capped by Jay Bruce's three-run homer. It was his first start since taking a perfect game into the eighth inning and a no-hitter into the ninth of a 5-1 win at Oakland.

Zack Cozart had a two-run triple in the fifth, and Lewis trailed 6-2 when he left the game with discomfort in his right triceps after throwing 68 pitches. He is off to the best start of his career, winning his first six decisions.
