Padres beat Pirates on first ninth-inning comeback of season

The Padres appeared headed to quick and certain doom on Sunday afternoon. Jordan Lyles had faltered late in his start, giving up a lead. Then Kirby Yates allowed a rare run in the eighth inning that put the Padres down a run, and the Padres were 0-24 when trailing after eight innings this season....

Lyles to start for Padres in place of Lucchesi; Erlin likely next day

Jordan Lyles made his first start of the season in place of another pitcher who wasn’t performing well. Then in his second start, Lyles nearly pitched a perfect game. For his third start, he will move up a day to pitch in place of Joey Lucchesi, Sunday against the Pirates. Lyles was scheduled to...

Thursday Rockpile: The Plate Depression

Rockies news and links for May 17, 2018 Rockies dodge disgrace at San Diego, but their offensive depression is still pending | The Athletic ($)The Colorado Rockies lineup was thoroughly dominated on a Tuesday afternoon in San Diego against the Padres— by of all pitchers, former Rockie Jordan Lyles. It was the culmination of a downright rotten week for the Rockies’ offense. Just two days prior, Milwaukee Brewers rookie Freddy Peralta struck out 13 Rockies in his major league debut. Over the past week, the Rox have averaged 3.6 runs scored per game, even having played five games at the...

Remembering the day Jordan Lyles almost no-hit the Colorado Rockies

Baseball is a sport where, no matter how much you suck, you can be king of the game for a day. It’s one of the reasons why I love it. Scooter Gennett is a fairly decent player but last year we saw him go yard four times in a game. It was remarkable. It will […] Remembering the day Jordan Lyles almost no-hit the Colorado Rockies - Rox Pile - Rox Pile - A Colorado Rockies Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

San Diego Padres Have to Keep This Ball Rolling After Yesterday

The San Diego Padres need not worry about yesterday’s non-perfect game. They would be much better-served focusing on the flawless victory.

Wednesday Rockpile: Rockies dominated by opposing pitcher

Rockies news and links for May 16, 2018 Jordan Lyles pitches perfect through seven, Padres beat Rockies 4-0 | Mile High Sports In Tuesday’s game, Jordan Lyles was very nearly perfect. He put away every Rockies batter he faced until Trevor Story in the eighth inning. Lyles, who spent some time with the Rockies organization, probably got some satisfaction throwing the second-best game in Padres history. Lyles was so close to the Padres’ first perfect game, but it was impressive nonetheless. The Padres had some offense to back up Lyles, and despite some walks later in the game, the...

Padres 4, Rockies 0: Jordan Lyles did what?

The Rockies lost a tough one on Tuesday, but it was almost historic. The Colorado Rockies lost to the San Diego Padres on Tuesday by a final score of 4-0. If you thought we were running out of ways to describe this woeful offense, hold on to your hat. Yes, that Jordan Lyles Join me as we go back to 2017 for a moment: when the Rockies mercifully parted ways with Lyles as their long reliever last season, he had a 6.94 ERA (73 ERA+). He was a disaster and the subject of many Twitter tantrums. Somehow Lyles did even worse with the Padres, posting a 9.39 ERA in five appearances. To his credit,...

Padres' Jordan Lyles through six perfect innings

Jordan Lyles allowed nine runs in over his final four appearances in the Colorado bullpen last year. He hadn’t been permitted to pitch out of the Rockies rotation since May 2016. No one in Petco Park’s visiting dugout Tuesday afternoon saw this coming. The 27-year-old Lyles has retired the first...

Jordan Lyles all he could be, just not all he was asked to be as Padres lose to Cardinals

The Padres couldn’t have asked for much more from Jordan Lyles in his first start of the season. Manager Andy Green, though, may have asked for too much from Lyles in what ended up being a 2-1 loss to the Cardinals in Thursday’s start to a four-game series. Lyles gave up a run in the first inning...
