HOUSTON -- Astros manager Brad Mills spent some time following Saturday's 6-3 loss watching video of Brandon Lyon's rough outing against the Braves. Lyon allowed four runs without recording an out in the 10th inning in his second appearance since being activated from the disabled list.
"The big thing that struck me last night was locating those pitches, and I think he would probably say the same thing," Mills said. "When the catcher is setting up away and the pitch winds up over [the plate], something's different. That's not him."
Lyon missed 32 games with right biceps tendinitis and a partial rotator cuff tear and returned to action Friday and gave up a home run in one inning.
"Maybe he's getting a feel for it," Mills said. "We're going to have to do what we can to find out why Brandon Lyon isn't throwing the ball like Brandon Lyon can."
