Lopez retired all five batters he faced to pick up his 14th hold in Friday's 10-7 win over the Brewers.
Lopez put behind him an ugly performance the previous night, when he took the loss after allowing three runs in one-third of an inning. On Friday, he came on after Matt Andriese gave up three runs in the seventh inning, allowing the Brewers to get within striking distance, and he set down the opposition for 1.2 innings. Thursday's performance aside, Lopez has emerged as a steady hand in the bullpen. His is a name to keep in mind if the Diamondbacks choose to be sellers at the trade deadline. They are still in the mix for one of two NL wild-card spots, but if things go south between now and the end of the month, they could deal closer Greg Holland.
Lopez (1-3) was charged with the loss Thursday against the Brewers, surrendering three runs on four hits while recording just one out.
Lopez replaced starter Merrill Kelly in the eighth inning with the score tied, 1-1. The right-hander gave up a leadoff double to Eric Thames, a single to Keston Hiura and an RBI single Orlando Arcia. The Brewers then double stole, causing catcher Carson Kelly to lurch his throw down the left field line as Huira made his way home. Lopez then gave up a sacrifice fly to Jesus Aguilar to give the Brewers a 4-1 lead. Across 43 appearances this season, Lopez owns a 2.23 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 27:11 K:BB.
Lopez (1-2) recorded just one out before surrendering the lead Wednesday at Dodger Stadium.
Lopez came into the 10th inning with the score tied, 4-4. He successfully sent Chris Taylor down on strikes but fell victim to the beast that is Cody Bellinger, who blasted a walk-off home run to end the game. Over 33 innings this season, Lopez has compiled a 1.36 ERA, 0.94 WHIP and 24:11 K:BB.
