Lewis putting up record postseason numbers
ST. PETERSBURG -- By allowing just one hit in six innings on Monday night, Colby Lewis has become the all-time leader in opponents batting average among pitchers with at least five postseason starts.

After a 4-3 victory over the Rays, Lewis is holding opponents to a .155 batting average in the postseason, having allowed 17 hits in 32 1/3 innings. His 1.67 ERA is the eighth lowest for pitchers with a minimum of five starts. Sandy Koufax is first with a 0.95 ERA in the postseason.

Lewis, at 4-0 in his five starts, is one of eight pitchers to have made at least five starts in the postseason and not lost a game. He has won four straight postseason starts. Since 2000, the only American League pitchers to win four straight starts in the playoffs were Josh Beckett and Andy Pettitte.
