So, not sure what happened yesterday morning, but when I hit publish, it didn't...I got to work and pulled up TCB on my iPhone to see that there was no recap on the front page. Apparently, I lost internet during that time because it was on the same page when I got home.
But, last post I talked about how it was a rough night the night before and it brought us back to reality. But, now, I know the world comes full circle and there are once again highs. That high mostly came from Jordan Lyles. Lyles finally had a dominating outing where he not only didn't allow runs, but he also had a high strikeout rate. Is this a breakout game in AAA? Oh, how I hope so! Only time will tell though.
Lyles wasn't the only big pitcher on the night. Xavier Cedeno had a Lyles-esque performance before he turned it over to the newly activated Danny Meszaros. Meszaros is back after his long suspension and he came back with a bang. He made it to AAA before his suspension so maybe he'll be back there soon. I'm really high on Meszaros and would love to see him in Houston as a September call-up at worst. He's had solid numbers in the minors and he has moved very quickly through the system. On to two nights of games after the jump!
