Jordan Lyles breaks glove hand
DENVER -- Starter Jordan Lyles walked through the clubhouse with a bandage covering his left hand.
Another night, yet another hand injury for the Colorado Rockies.
He was hurt when he tried to tag out Martin Prado at home after a wild pitch. But Lyles stayed in the game, using two hands to catch the ball when it was thrown back to him. He finally left after the fourth.
"I knew something was wrong, because I've never felt that feeling before," Lyles said. "I didn't want to come out in the first, make the bullpen go nine. Thankfully, we got four innings."
Asked how long Lyles might be out, Rockies manager Walt Weiss said, "For a little bit."
Troy Tulowitzki just shook his head at the news.
"We've had a lot of hand injuries," said Tulowitzki, whose team dropped its sixth straight game.
Before the contest, Rockies All-Star outfielder Carlos Gonzalez was placed on the 15-day disabled list with an inflamed left index finger. It's another big bat out of the lineup, as Nolan Arenado (fractured finger) went on the DL on May 24.
"With the streak we've been on, to have Lyles break his hand, it's unfortunate," Tulowitzki said.
