HOUSTON (AP) - Colby Lewis threw 5 2-3 shutout innings, and Adrian Beltre and Rougned Odor each homered to lead the Texas Rangers to a 4-0 win over the Houston Astros on Monday night.
Lewis (3-2) struck out a season-high eight and allowed seven hits to improve to 4-0 in his career at Minute Maid Park. The right-hander bounced back from a poor outing against Colorado on Wednesday where he allowed seven runs in less than four innings.
Beltre had two hits, including a two-run home run to left in the third. Odor had two hits, including a run-scoring single in the fourth and his first career home run in the sixth - a solo shot into the upper deck in right field - to make it 4-0. Prince Fielder also had two hits.
Brad Peacock (0-4) struck out a career-high 11 but allowed four runs on seven hits in six innings.
