The Rangers’ Colby Lewis didn’t get a perfect game Friday night against the A’s, but a Maddux ain’t too shabby.Lewis lost his perfect game when A’s left fielder Danny Valencia doubled down the left field lineto lead off the eighth inning, buthe retired Jeremy Hellickson Jersey the next three hitters to keep the shutout intact. Lewis allowed a single to Josh Phegley to lead off the ninth but retired Eric Sogard, Sam Fuld and Mark Canha to complete the shutout in just 97 pitches, thereby achieving the non-official-but-still-recognized “Maddux,” an accomplishmentnamed after Hall of Famer Greg Maddux, who had a penchant for pitching complete-game shutouts on fewerthan 100 pitches.MORE: MLB no-hitters in 2015The Rangers beat the A’s 4-0 and will maintain at least a one-game lead onthe Twins for the second AL Chris Tillman Jersey wild-card spot.With Friday’s win, Lewis moves to 15-8 on the season with a 4.45 ERA.
