Lyles then walked Pat Valaika before he was replaced by reliever Kirby Yates. Lyles matched his career high with 10 strikeouts.

Lucchesi, who is 3-2 with a 3.23 ERA in nine starts this season, said he had tightness in his glutes during Monday night's loss to the Rockies. Nick Wittgren (2-0) replaced him and worked 1 2-3 flawless innings to lower his ERA to 0.69.
