Colby Lewis outlasted Jaime García, but it's hardly been easy for the Texas starter.
Lance Berkman led off the fourth with a grounder that wanted to sneak into right field, but first baseman Michael Young ranged to his right to stop the ball. He couldn't field it cleanly, though, and recovered just in time to make an errant throw to Lewis covering first.
Lewis did get the ball in time, but as the infrared clearly shows -- oh, and Welcome Back, Infrared! -- Lewis never touched first base:
In the radio booth, Bobby Valentine commented, "As a defensive player, Michael Young is a very good offensive player."
Making matters worse, Lewis walked Matt Holliday on four pitches.
David Freese grounded into a fielder's choice, Berkman moving to third. And on a full count, Yadier Molina hit a grounder to third base, with Berkman scoring the tying run and Freese going to second. Lewis did strike out Nick Punto to end the inning.
Lewis hasn't thrown a great number of pitches, only 62 through four innings. But he's been in trouble throughout Game 6, and the Rangers' bullpen is loaded. Meanwhile, we're heading to the fifth and the score is Cardinals 3, Rangers 3 even though the Cardinals have only two hits in the game.
