Pirates’ Lyles fans 12 in win

SAN DIEGO — Rookie Bryan Reynolds hit a go-ahead, two-run home run and Jordan Lyles struck out a career-high 12 in seven innings to lead the Pittsburgh Pirates to a 5-3 victory against the San Diego Padres on Friday night.

Reynolds homered to right-center with one out in the fourth off left-hander Joey Lucchesi (3-3), his second, for a 2-1 lead. Josh Bell was aboard on a single.

Lyles (4-1) allowed Franmil Reyes’ 14th homer with one out in the first, and then didn’t allow a baserunner past first until the sixth, when he got into and out of trouble.

Lyles, who pitched for the Padres for parts of the 2017 and 2018 seasons, allowed one run and five hits.
