SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) - Texas right-hander Colby Lewis failed to get out of the first inning in his first start since having hip surgery in August, and the Rangers lost 6-5 to the Cleveland Indians on Monday.

Lewis, who won 14 games in 2011, allowed two runs on two hits and two walks. He retired only two of the six batters he faced. He has not pitched in the majors since July 18, 2012.

“My stride is so much longer now with so much more range in my right hip, that I’m just going to have more reps to find the release point,” Lewis said. “I had a certain way of going about my mechanics the last four or five years. Now I have to make an adjustment.

“It’s just the inconsistencies. I’d hit it good one spot and the next time it would be off six to eight inches or a foot. People say it’s the first one and get it out of the way, but I expected more out of myself,” Lewis added. “It is what it is, move on and fix some things and hopefully the next one’s better.”

Jeff Francoeur hit a two-run, two-out, two-strike single to end Lewis’ outing after 32 pitches. Elliot Johnson, who went 3 for 3, tripled home two runs for Cleveland in the sixth inning.

Mitch Moreland drove in two runs for the Rangers with a sacrifice fly and groundout.
