Lyles' arm and bat lift Astros, eliminate Brewers Submitted: 09/30/2012
MILWAUKEE - Jordan Lyles pitched his first major league shutout and hit his first home run as the Houston Astros beat Milwaukee 7-0 on Sunday, eliminating the Brewers from wild-card playoff contention.

The Brewers, who reached the NL championship series last year, had surged since mid-August to get back into the postseason race. But the last-place Astros won two of three at Miller Park to finish off Milwaukee.

The 21-year-old Lyles (5-12) threw a four-hitter in his first complete game in 40 big league starts.


Lyles, Justin Maxwell, Jed Lowrie and Matt Dominguez hit solo home runs.
