Rangers right-hander Colby Lewis hadn’t seen the New York Yankees in the regular season since 2003. When he takes the mound on Wednesday he’ll be facing them for the second time in a week.

“I think years are different,” Lewis said. “You go through different things.”

Lewis threw a quality start against the Yankees last Thursday and is looking for another on Wednesday. He’s the last Rangers pitcher who’s had consecutive quality starts this season (June 29 and July 5).

Lewis (6-8, 6.23 ERA) spent the entire 2013 season on the DL.

“This is the best I’ve felt all year long so I think I’m getting stronger, getting adapted to how my body’s reacting now,” Lewis said. “Everything feels healthy so I don’t know. There’s no more soreness in the hip. There’s no more soreness in the elbow so it’s just going out there and getting it done now.”
