CultureMap Dallas: Pitcher Colby Lewis looks at home on Texas Rangers mound

Texas Rangers pitcher Colby Lewis.

How do the Texas Rangers celebrate a guy’s first win in 22 months? Even Ron Washington wasn’t sure what the appropriate reaction was to Colby Lewis’ win over the Chicago White Sox on April 19.

“I’m more than certain the guys in that clubhouse might have bathed him in something,” Washington joked. Any celebration for Lewis is well-deserved, given his extended absence due to injuries.

Even the crowd at Globe Life Park knew the significance of Lewis’ presence in the Rangers’ rotation as he walked off the field in the sixth inning. The fans gave him a standing ovation.

In my latest story at CultureMap Dallas, I break down the significance to Lewis’ return to the rotation.
