Lopez (2-8) allowed five earned runs on seven hits and one walk while striking out three across 4.1 innings to take the loss Thursday against Cleveland. Lopez was tagged for three home runs, two of which came in the opening inning. After maintaining a 3.68 ERA and 1.45 WHIP with 20 strikeouts in 22 innings during four-start stretch from May 21 to June 6, Lopez has surrendered 10 earned runs in nine innings of work across his last two outings. Overall, Lopez has a poor 5.95 ERA paired with a 65:27 K:BB across 65 frames.
Lopez (2-7) took the loss against Tampa Bay on Saturday, completing 4.2 innings and allowing five runs on eight hits and one walk while striking out eight. Lopez tied a season high with eight strikeouts, but he otherwise posted his worst outing since a two-inning start May 15. The right-hander entered the contest with four straight appearances of at least five innings and three or fewer runs, but both streaks came to an end in the loss. Lopez's ERA jumped to 5.64, and his seven losses are tied for third-worst in the league. Lopez will try to get back into the win column in his next scheduled start, which is tentatively projected to take place at Cleveland on Thursday.
Lopez (2-6) allowed three runs on four hits and three walks while striking out two in five innings to earn the win against Cleveland on Sunday. Lopez earned his first win since April 16 in Sunday's matchup, and he's now lasted at least five innings in each of his last four starts. The righty has posted a 5.30 ERA and 1.43 WHIP in 56 innings across 12 starts to begin the season. He tentatively lines up to make his next start on the road against Tampa Bay on Sunday.
Lopez worked six innings while taking a no-decision Monday in the Orioles' 3-2 loss to the Twins in 10 innings. He gave up one run on five hits and two walks while striking out seven. Facing off against Minnesota for the second start in a row, Lopez came away with another quality start, but he was far more sharper this time around than he was on May 26. After issuing four walks against three strikeouts in the prior outing, Lopez pumped in two thirds of his pitches for strikes Monday while yielding only one extra-base hit (a double to Josh Donaldson). Despite the better results of late, Lopez still maintains a poor 5.29 ERA for the season, and he hasn't captured a win since April 16.
Lopez (1-6) took the loss Wednesday at Minnesota after allowing three runs on four hits with four walks and three strikeouts across six innings. The 28-year-old kept the Twins off the board through five frames, but he gave up a single and a walk before surrendering a two-out, three-run homer to Miguel Sano during the sixth inning. It's the third straight loss for Lopez, whose lone win of the season came April 16 at Texas. The right-hander has a 5.80 ERA, 1.47 WHIP and 45:20 K:BB over 45 innings this season.
