Luzardo (6-9) yielded one run on six hits with 11 strikeouts over 5.1 innings to earn the win Saturday against Philadelphia.

The 24-year-old enjoyed the first double-digit strikeout performance of his career, limiting the Phillies to a Matt Vierling RBI single in the fifth inning. Luzardo had a rocky 2021 campaign, putting up a 6.61 ERA and 58:32 K:BB in 57.1 innings, but his season-ending effort showcased the high-end ability that has made him one of the game's top pitching prospects.
