74-66 - Reports of Colby Lewis' demise were greatly exaggerated

That was fun to watch.

Folks seemed to figure that Colby Lewis was running out of gas here down the home stretch as he'd put together a trio of subpar outings during his stellar season. Remarkably, Colby is coming up on his career high innings pitched and for a grizzled vet with a robot hip, I suppose it wouldn't have shocked anyone if he was cooked.

Well, instead, Colby pitched a complete game shutout against the A's tonight and was perfect through 7 innings until a double by Danny Valencia to begin the 8th inning. That was one hell of a performance by the old man and one hell of a night to pick up his career high 15th win.
