Minor League Monday - Colby Lewis.

Today we sort of see Colby Lewis on this 2000 Royal Rookies High Yield card. There is no number on this card. Due to the shadowing it is hard to tell if there are any facial features on this card either. Due to the airbrush job it is difficult to determine which minor league team's uniform Lewis is wearing here. The back of the card states, "Scouts say Lewis' raw stuff is incredible..."

Last night Colby was pretty close to incredible as he pitched in Milwaukee. He managed to give up just two runs in eight innings while striking out ten. He allowed just one walk. With the exception of two mistakes that the Brewers sent out of the park Colby was pretty much untouchable. Beside the two long balls there was just one other hit from the Brew Crew.

Not a bad pitching performance. Since this was a National League game there was also another side to Colby's night. At the plate he went 2-for-4 with a run scored and two RBI of his own. Not bad at all. There's a lot of position players that would like that line.

Overall a good night for Lewis and the Rangers. The 7-2 win kept them ahead of the surging Angels.
