ARLINGTON (AP) — Cincinnati already had a hit and walk in the first inning when Jay Bruce faced Colby Lewis in the Texas right-hander's first start since flirting with a perfect game.
The slugger's three-run homer put the Reds ahead to stay. Zack Cozart homered along with a two-run triple and the Reds beat the Rangers 8-2 on Tuesday night, snapping Texas' season-best winning streak at seven games and ending the best start of Lewis' career at six straight wins.
