Lyles did not factor into the decision during Thursday's win against the Twins after allowing three runs on seven hits and a pair of walks while striking out seven across five innings. The Twins got to Lyles right away with a leadoff home run by Max Kepler in the first inning. Luckily, the right-hander pulled it together from there, only allowing another pair of runs to sneak in due to an RBI single off the bat of Willians Astudillo in the third. It wasn't the cleanest outing, but Lyles limited the damage enough to position Texas for an extra-inning win. The 30-year-old has surrendered nine homers while claiming only one victory this season, which came in his first start back on April 4. He'll look to improve upon a 7.09 ERA and 1.64 WHIP when he lines up to battle the Giants in San Francisco on Tuesday.
Lyles allowed five runs on six hits and two walks while striking out three over four innings in a victory over the Red Sox on Saturday. He didn't factor into the decision. The righty has struggled as of late and labored Saturday, needing 84 pitches to complete four innings of work. The 30-year-old now has a 7.39 ERA and 23:8 K:BB. Lyles will need to pick it up if he wishes to remain in the rotation.
Lyles (1-2) was tagged with the loss against the Angels on Monday, surrendering seven runs on 10 hits and three walks while striking out two across 2.2 innings. Despite being regarded as one of the Rangers' most consistent pitchers this year, Lyles was unable to find success against the hot-hitting Angels, scattering a season-worst 10 hits and seven runs in his shortest outing of the year. Los Angeles hit hard and struck early, including a two-run double by Shohei Ohtani in the second inning and back-to-back home runs by Justin Upton and Albert Pujols in the third. Across 24 innings, the right-hander holds a 6.75 ERA and 1.54 WHIP. He'll look to bounce back at home Saturday against the Red Sox.
Lyles (1-1) allowed three earned runs on five hits while striking out five across six innings Tuesday, taking the loss to the Angels. Lyles made his longest and first quality start of the season, but it resulted in his first loss. He has allowed at least one home run in each of his four starts, with Tuesday's coming from the bat of Mike Trout in the sixth inning. The 30-year-old has consistently produced decent starts without any splashy numbers and by consistently limiting damage, producing a 4.64 ERA in 21.1 innings.
Lyles allowed three earned runs on five hits and one walk while striking out four over 5.1 innings Thursday. He did not factor in the decision in the win over the Rays. Lyles was decent in his start Thursday, where most of his damage came on a fourth inning two-run home run from Mike Brosseau. The right-hander was able to improve on strikeouts compared to his last start when he only picked up a single punchout. Lyles is being used as a traditional starter for the time being and is scheduled to face the Angels next.
