San Diego’s Jor­dan Lyles took a per­fect game into the eighth in­ning against the Colorado Rock­ies but saw it bro­ken up by Trevor Story’s sin­gle. Lyles struck out 10 in 7 1/3 in­nings as the Padres won 4-0.

The Pitts­burgh Pi­rates also recorded a shutout with a 7-0 win over the Chicago White Sox.
