Analysis: Including his ugly postseason outing, Lewis went 0-5 with an 8.53 ERA in his last six starts. He's 0-1 with a 5.16 ERA in his last five playoff appearances.

Analysis: Lewis has lost all four of his starts since missing nearly three months with a shoulder problem, giving up 17 runs in 18 1/3 innings. He's been solid in the postseason, going 4-1 with a 2.38 ERA in nine games. Lewis faced Toronto twice this season and went seven innings in a no-decision each time, allowing a combined five runs and nine hits.

Analysis: Lewis was hurt by a three-run homer to Corey Dickerson in the third inning that followed an error by Rangers second baseman Rougned Odor. Saturday's outing could be taken as a positive from the 37-year-old, who was rocked for seven runs over 1 1/3 innings at Oakland in his previous assignment, though he still owns a 6.38 ERA in four starts since returning from a shoulder strain.

Analysis: Lewis was barely threatened the first eight innings as he got the A's to swing early in counts and only got to three balls three times in the first seven innings. He needed just 16 pitches through the fifth and sixth innings, retiring Max Muncy on a bunt attempt in the sixth.
