Sox Split Squat Beats Rangers
GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) -- Colby Lewis pitched four perfect innings for the Texas Rangers in a 3-2 loss to a Chicago White Sox split squad Saturday.

Lewis, the Rangers expected opening day starter, struck out five and threw 36 pitches. He struck out Paul Konerko, Adam Dunn and A.J. Pierzynski in the second inning.

Konerko ended the perfect game with a leadoff single in the fifth off Scott Feldman.

Dylan Axelrod, who is vying for a spot in Chicago's bullpen, allowed a run and three hits, struck out one and walked two in two innings.

The White Sox scored three runs in the ninth.

As a precaution, Texas right fielder Craig Gentry left the game with tightness in his left hamstring. The Rangers rested most of their regulars Saturday.
