Lopez (5-8) picked up the win after allowing two runs on six hits and a walk while striking out eight over seven innings Friday night against the Rays.
Lopez gave up a run in the first inning on a single to right center, and he allowed another in the second, but he was able to settle down and toss five scoreless frames to close out his night. The 25-year-old right-hander has been sharp coming out of the All-Star break, allowing just two runs over his last two starts (13 innings) while fanning 15.
Lopez allowed one unearned run on three hits and two walks across six innings in a no-decision Sunday against the A's. He struck out seven.
Lopez was dominant during his time on the mound, allowing just two runners to reach second base in this quality start. He was hardly to blame for the run on his ledger, which came following a two-base error in the third inning. Lopez narrowly missed out on a win, but this was a nice bounce-back effort nevertheless after he surrendered seven runs in his last outing. His next outing should come on the road against the Rays.
Manager Rick Renteria said after Thursday's game that Lopez will remain in the starting rotation, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.
Thursday's outing was another ugly one for Lopez, as he gave up six earned runs on nine hits in 5.1 innings. It was his seventh start this season with five or more runs allowed, pushing his ERA to 6.34, but Renteria said the team will let Lopez work through his issues on the job. The volume gives Lopez some value in certain points formats, but that's about the extent of his appeal at this point.
Lopez is scheduled to make his next start Thursday against the Tigers.
Heading into the week, Lopez lined up for two more starts before the All-Star break, but those plans were after Tuesday's game against the Tigers was rained out. Since Lopez had already completed his full pregame warmup Tuesday before the contest was postponed, the White Sox won't make him available for Wednesday's doubleheader. Lopez should be well rested and ready to take on a normal workload by the time Thursday arrives.
Lopez won't make his scheduled start Tuesday against the Tigers after the game was postponed due to inclement weather.
The White Sox announced Dylan Cease and Ross Detwiler will start Wednesday's doubleheader as previously scheduled, so it's not fully clear when Lopez will make his next start. The 25-year-old at least figures to make one final appearance before the All-Star break.
Lopez allowed three runs on nine hits with one walk and three strikeouts across six innings during a no-decision against the Red Sox on Wednesday.
The 25-year-old has allowed three or fewer runs in each of his last two starts, but he's also had some rough outings since Memorial Day. Coming into the afternoon, Lopez was leading the league in earned runs allowed, with the long ball a big reason why. Lopez has allowed at least one homer in nine straight starts, and he owns a 2.1 HR/9. Overall, Lopez is 4-7 with a 6.12 ERA, 1.58 WHIP and 83 strikeouts in 92.2 innings this season. Lopez will start again at home against the Tigers next Wednesday.
Lopez allowed three runs on six hits and a walk while striking out four over 5.1 innings to take a no-decision against the Rangers on Friday.
Lopez was lit up early for runs in each of the first two innings, including two home runs, before finishing up with 3.1 scoreless frames. The right-hander entered the game with the highest ERA among qualified starters (6.31) after allowing 25 runs over the previous 25.1 innings, and he didn't do much to improve it Friday. Lopez's next start comes Wednesday on the road against the suddenly hot Red Sox.
Lopez (4-7) took the loss Saturday against the Yankees by surrendering five runs on six hits across six innings. He struck out four and walked two.
Lopez allowed four runs on four hits during the fourth inning Saturday but otherwise pitched fairly well for the White Sox. The 25-year-old has a 6.31 ERA, 1.59 WHIP and 76:36 K:BB through 81.1 innings and should take the mound at Texas next weekend.
Lopez (4-6) allowed one run on a walk and four hits across six innings Sunday, striking out eight and taking the win over Kansas City.
The lone run to score off Lopez came from a Jorge Soler solo homer in the fourth frame. Sunday's outing was much-needed for the 25-year-old after he gave up 19 runs over his three previous outings. He also walked fewer than two batters for the first time since May 8. Lopez's inconsistency has cursed him with a 6.21 ERA across 75.1 innings on the year. He'll see the Yankees at home Saturday.
Lopez (3-6) yielded six runs on five hits with four walks and four strikeouts over four innings while taking a loss against the Nationals on Tuesday.
The White Sox spotted their starting pitcher a five-run lead in the first two frames, but by the end of the fifth, that lead was gone. Lopez let the Nationals back in the game by allowing a pair of homers, which has been an issue for him all season. Lopez has allowed at least one homer in five straight contests, and he's tossed up 10 long balls over his last seven outings. Overall, Lopez is 3-6 with a 6.62 ERA, 1.67 WHIP, .299 batting average against, 2.2 HR/9 and 64 strikeouts in 69.1 innings this season. He will get another crack at the Nationals in his next start at home Monday.
Lopez didn't factor into the decision in Wednesday's 8-7 win over the Royals, coughing up five runs on 12 hits and two walks over 5.2 innings while striking out three.
He kept the damage to a minimum through five innings but faded badly in the sixth, as Lopez got tagged for four runs and three extra-base hits in a span of seven batters, including a Jorge Soler homer. The right-hander will take a 6.20 ERA and 60:29 K:BB through 65.1 innings into his next outing Tuesday -- on the road against the club that originally signed him, the Nationals.
Lopez (3-5) took the loss in Friday's 11-4 rout by the Twins, coughing up eight runs on seven hits -- including three home runs -- and two walks over 3.2 innings while striking out three.
Minnesota's juggernaut offense has been steamrolling nearly every pitcher in its path this season, and Lopez was no exception. The right-hander gave up runs in every inning, and his streak of three straight quality starts ended with a massive thud. He'll take a 6.03 ERA and 57:27 K:BB through 59.2 innings into his next outing Wednesday, at home against the Royals.
Lopez allowed one run on four hits and two walks while striking out one batter in a no-decision against the Blue Jays on Sunday.
Lopez gave up a home run to Billy McKinney in the third inning but otherwise shut down the Toronto offense. He has now pitched at least six innings in six of his 10 starts this season but has shown inconsistency keeping the ball in the yard -- he has allowed 11 home runs on the season -- and missing bats. Sunday's one-strikeout performance was a season low and comes only four starts removed from a dominant 14-punchout performance against Detroit. Lopez will travel to Minnesota for his next scheduled start Friday.
Lopez (3-4) gave up two runs (one earned) on two hits and two walks while striking out six through 7.2 innings, taking the win over the Indians on Monday.
A leadoff home run from Francisco Lindor was the only earned run given up in a fantastic performance by Lopez. The 25-year-old induced 15 swinging strikes in his longest outing of the season. He has a 3-4 record with a 5.58 ERA through nine starts. Lopez will make his next start Sunday against the Blue Jays.
Lopez gave up three runs on nine hits and one walk across six innings during Wednesday's 5-3 loss to the Indians. He struck out two and did not factor in the decision.
Lopez allowed all three runs to score during the fourth inning with four hits and a hit by pitch, but was otherwise able to hold the Indians in check. The 25-year-old has a 6.38 ERA, 1.75 WHIP and 47:21 K:BB through 42.1 innings, and lines up to face the Indians again Monday.
Lopez (2-4) took the loss against the Red Sox on Friday, giving up six earned runs on eight hits over five innings, striking out six and walking three as the White Sox fell 6-1.
The 25-year-old had a dominant 14-strikeout effort his last time out, but he couldn't follow it up with another strong performance, as the Red Sox knocked him around for six earned before forcing him from the contest after 105 pitches. He had been on a nice run that had seen him throw six innings and give up two runs or less in each of his previous three starts while recording 27 strikeouts, but a handful of blowups leaves Lopez with some ugly ratios: He's posted a 6.69 ERA and a 1.76 WHIP over 36.1 innings.
Lopez (2-3) allowed one unearned run on two hits and three walks while striking out a career-high 14 batters in Sunday's 4-1 win over the Tigers.
Over his last three outings -- all quality starts -- Lopez has halved an ERA that was 12.15 after his first two starts of the season. He was tagged for six home runs in the first two appearances but has settled in nicely since, giving up three earned runs on 14 hits and five walks while striking out 25 over 18 innings. The right-hander cited his ability to command his fastball up in the zone, per Scott Merkin of MLB.com. "I know I have good velocity with my fastball. It's not going to be easy for them to hit my fastball when I'm able to perform and to hit the spot I want to hit." Lopez next toes the rubber Friday at home against Boston.
Lopez will start Sunday's game against the Tigers after Saturday's contest was postponed due to snow.
Saturday's game will be made up as part of a doubleheader at a later date. Sunday's originally scheduled starter, Manny Banuelos, will pitch Monday instead.
Lopez struck out eight and allowed three runs (two earned) on seven hits in a 4-3 loss to the Tigers on Sunday.
Lopez didn't get much support from the offense, which didn't score during his six innings, and he was a victim of shoddy outfield defense. After an ugly first three starts, Lopez has returned to his 2018 form over the last two outings, both quality starts. He'll look to retain that form in his next start Saturday at home against these same Tigers.
Lopez (1-2) allowed one earned run on five hits and two walks while striking out five across six innings to earn the win Tuesday against the Royals.
Lopez turned in his longest and most effective outing of the season, surrendering only a solo home run to Lucas Duda. The effort was both his first quality start and win of the season, and comes on the heels of three consecutive ugly starts in which he surrendered 18 earned runs across 13.1 innings. He'll look to build on this solid effort in his next start, likely to come Sunday at Detroit.
