Lyles turned in a quality start, allowing three runs on four hits, walking three and striking out five over six innings of a 4-1 loss to the Giants on Thursday afternoon.
Lyles (6-2, 4.08 ERA) has struggled through much of August, but he kept his team in this one even though they never mounted much of an offense. He made one mistake early allowing a two-run home run to Gregor Blanco, but was strong before tiring in the sixth where he issued all three walks. He'll look for a better outcome when he faces the Giants again, this time at Coors Field, in his next start.
