|Lewis' First Shutout Leads Rangers Past White Sox
|CHICAGO (AP) -- Colby Lewis pitched a five-hitter for his first career shutout and the Texas Rangers beat the Chicago White Sox 4-0 on Monday night.
Endy Chavez added three hits and scored two times for the Rangers, who have won four of their last five games. Chavez was hitless in nine at-bats since he was promoted from Triple-A Round Rock on Saturday.
Lewis (4-4) struck out seven and walked one in his third career complete game. It was also the fourth consecutive start of at least 7 1-3 innings for the 6-foot-4 right-hander, who improved to 3-1 with a 1.67 ERA during the impressive stretch.
Edwin Jackson (3-5) took the loss.
