Dang ol'. Maybe the Rangers should get every player a cybernetic hip if Colby Lewis can turn back the clock like he has with his. Texas was able to capitalize on an infinite number of walks from Royals starter Danny Duffy and a few dingers from Adrian Beltre (the 399th of his career), newcomer Thomas Field, and Prince Fielder to win their fourth game at home this year.

Player of the Game: Colby went seven innings and allowed only one run on three hits while striking out five Royals. For the year, Colby moves to 3-2 on the season, has an ERA of 2.40, and has allowed three for fewer runs in six of his seven starts this season.
