Means allowed two runs on four hits and two walks while striking out four over 5.2 innings in Wednesday's loss to the Yankees. He did not factor into the game's decision.
The 28-year-old surrendered both runs on a two-run home run by Gio Urshela in the third inning. He threw 103 pitches and was pulled after walking Luke Voit with two outs in the sixth inning. Means has put together five straight strong starts, compiling a 3.30 ERA and 0.97 WHIP with three quality starts over those outings. He's projected to face the Phillies in his next start Monday.
