SURPRISE, Ariz. — Texas right-hander Colby Lewis did not 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 today.

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.

Jeff Francoeur hit a two-run, two-out, two-strike single to end Lewis’ outing after 32 pitches. Elliot Johnson 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.
