Jordan Lyles finished the season on a positive note Friday, picking up a win after allowing five runs in six innings against the Yankees.
Lyles was able to hold on after the Royals busted out with nine runs in the bottom of the first. It’s his third win in September, matching his total from the first five months. He ends the year 6-17 with a 6.85 ERA in 31 starts. The Royals signed him to a two-year, $17 million deal last winter, so for better or worse, he’ll remain a part of the team’s rotation in 2024.
