Rockies starter Lyles out after getting hit by Pujols' liner
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) Colorado Rockies starter Jordan Lyles has left the game against the Los Angeles Angels with an injured right hand after getting hit by Albert Pujols' line drive to end the first inning.
Christian Bergman took over in the second inning for the Rockies, who have lost 10 straight games.
Lyles had little time to react to the liner from Pujols. Second baseman D.J. LeMahieu fielded the deflection and threw out Pujols to end the first inning, but Lyles was pulled from the game when his hand swelled in the dugout.
Lyles was 2-3 with a 4.42 ERA in his first six starts for the Rockies. He broke a bone in his left hand last June while making a tag at the plate.
