Last updated on Thursday, April 15, 2010

(CLEVELAND, OH) - Colby Lewis recorded a career-high-tying ten strikeouts in a spot start as the Texas Rangers beat the Cleveland Indians 6-2.

Lewis allowed two runs on three hits over five and a third innings as he started in place of CJ Wilson, who came down with a case of food poisoning.

Nelson Cruz hit a solo home run, his sixth of the season, while Julio Borbon had a two-run single as the Rangers won their third game in a row.

Cleveland's lone offense came on Michael Brantley's two-run double in the sixth as the Indians suffered their fifth-straight loss.

The Rangers go for a sweep of the three-game series this afternoon at Progressive Field.
