  4. Rangers entered Game 2 with mound edge

    Rob Neyer

    It's easy to miss how well Colby Lewis pitched this season. He finished with a losing record (12-13). His ERA (3.72) was fine, but nothing special. Skeptics might look at a 30-year-old pitcher with a 24-28 career record and a 5.27 career ERA...
