"Just ran into a buzzsaw that last inning, in the sixth," Lyles said. "I made a decent pitch, the curveball, and (Meadows) put a good swing on it. After that, started pounding the zone again to Mercer and left it over the plate."
"After we struck out CarGo, that's when it kind of got real for me," said Lyles (1-1), who moved into the rotation last week. "The crowd started to get loud and then we made two good pitches to Trevor."
