Recap


Astros 7, Brewers 0: Jordan Lyles pitched a four-hit shutout and belted his first career home run as visiting Houston ended Milwaukee’s wild-card hopes.

Lyles (5-12) earned his first career shutout and hit his home run in the fifth, one of four solo blasts by the Astros within three innings. Fernando Martinez homered in the fourth, while Jed Lowrie and Matt Dominguez went back to back in the sixth for a 5-0 lead.

Milwaukee, which made a huge run to climb into contention, lost for the fifth time in seven games. The Brewers managed just four singles against Lyles, who struck out three and walked one.

Martinez and Dominguez finished with two hits apiece and Carlos Corporan added a two-run single for the Astros, who have won three of their last four.

Tyler Greene doubled home the first run of the game in the third for Houston off Milwaukee starter Mike Fiers (9-10). Fiers allowed five runs on six hits over six innings and struck out 10.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Milwaukee won the season series, 9-8. … The Astros (53-106) avoided setting the franchise record for losses in a season. … Brewers 3B Aramis Ramirez has 50 doubles, three from tying the club record held by Lyle Overbay (2004).
