Lopez (9-14) allowed five runs on nine hits and two walks over 5.1 innings Monday, striking out two batters and taking the loss against Minnesota.
On the bright side, Lopez didn't allow a home run Monday after serving up four in his last start. He's given up 11 runs over his last two outings, though, inflating his ERA from 5.17 to 5.44. The 25-year-old will look to get back on track in Detroit on Sunday.
Lopez allowed six runs on nine hits and one walk while striking out six over 4.2 innings to pick up the loss against Kansas City on Wednesday.
Lopez was hoping to maintain the form he had in his last start, when he pitched a complete-game one-hitter, but the Royals teed off on offerings that stayed over the center of the plate. The right-hander was touched for four home runs and has now given up 31 in 166.2 innings (1.7 HR/9). Lopez's inconsistent season trudges on Monday when he faces the Twins on the road.
Lopez threw a complete-game while striking out 11 and allowing one run on one hit with three walks to earn a victory against the Indians on Thursday.
This was quite a way to bounce back from his shortest outing of the season when he didn't get out of the first inning against the Braves. Lopez's one-hitter was his first complete game of the season, and he had only gone eight innings one other time previously. However, Lopez is still an unimpressive 9-12 with a 5.17 ERA, 1.43 WHIP and 149 strikeouts in 162 innings this season. He will face the Royals at home in his next outing Wednesday.
Lopez (8-12) allowed six runs on six hits and one walk over two-thirds of an inning and was handed the loss Saturday to the Braves.
Lopez nearly got out of the first inning with one run allowed, but a Tyler Flowers infield chopper bounced off the third base bag, giving him enough time to beat the throw. Three more hits followed and Lopez was done. Chicago's most consistent starter in 2018 has had trouble this season but appeared to have righted himself since the All-Star break. Lopez pitched to a 2.82 ERA in nine starts following the break before Saturday's short outing. He's next scheduled to throw Thursday on the road against the Indians.
