Lopez went 4-for-8 with a double and three runs scored in Monday's doubleheader against Cleveland. Getting the start at shortstop and hitting second in both games, Lopez did an exceptional job setting the table and helping the Royals to a sweep. The 26-year-old has hit safely in five straight games and 16 of the last 17, slashing .397/.429/.493 over that latter stretch with one homer, two steals, seven RBI and 17 runs.
Lopez went 3-for-5 with an RBI, a stolen base and a run scored in Tuesday's 10-7 win over Oakland. The infielder is on quite a hot run at the plate, going 20-for-45 (.444) during his current 10-game hitting streak. Lopez has put up eight multi-hit efforts in that span, lifting his season slash line to .303/.368/.380 in 488 plate appearances. He's added 20 stolen bases, two home runs, 39 RBI and 65 runs scored while recently solidifying his role in the No. 2 spot in the order.
Lopez went 3-for-5 with a home run, two RBI and two runs scored in Thursday's 6-0 win over Baltimore. The 26-year-old went deep in the first inning, and that was the only run until he added an RBI single in the eighth. Lopez is far from a power hitter, as Thursday's homer was just his second of the year. He's still been hot at the plate lately, with multiple hits in five of six games during his current hitting streak. The shortstop owns a .297/.365/.375 slash line with 38 RBI, 62 runs scored and 19 stolen bases across 469 plate appearances.
Lopez went 2-for-4 with a double, a stolen base and two runs scored in Sunday's 6-0 win over the White Sox. The shortstop went 4-for-12 with four runs scored in the three-game series versus the White Sox this weekend. Lopez is up to 19 stolen bases without getting caught this year. He's added a solid .291/.362/.362 slash line in 449 plate appearances, serving mainly as a contact hitter while earning a starting gig at shortstop even with Adalberto Mondesi back from the injured list and playing at third base.
Lopez went 3-for-4 with a run scored in Sunday's 4-3 loss to Seattle. The shortstop finished the four-game series in Seattle at 10-for-17 with two RBI and four runs scored. All 10 of Lopez's hits in the series were singles, as he continues to make light but efficient contact from the No. 2 hole in the order. He raised his slash line to .292/.361/.362 with Sunday's third consecutive three-hit effort.
