Padres’ Jordan Lyles perfect through 6 innings vs Rockies
SAN DIEGO (AP) Jordan Lyles‘ bid for a perfect game for San Diego has been broken up by Trevor Story’s one-out single in the eighth inning for Colorado.
Lyles then walked Pat Valaika before he was replaced by reliever Kirby Yates. Lyles struck out 10.
San Diego had a 4-0 lead.
The 27-year-old Lyles replaced Bryan Mitchell in the rotation last week. He pitched five effective innings in a 2-1 loss to St. Louis in his first start of the year Thursday night.
The Padres remain the only team in the majors without a no-hitter.
