The Astros have struggled in rubber matches this season, and on Wednesday they'll send out the struggling Jordan Lyles to try and close out a series win over the Royals. Lyles is 0-2 with a 7.27 ERA in his last two starts, despite carrying shutouts on the road into the fifth inning in each of those outings (quote courtesy MLB.com)
"He said he didn't feel like the game's getting away from him," Mills said on Friday. "He was cruising along so well and throwing the ball so well, and even some of those hits really weren't stung, but they found the holes."
