White Sox right-hander Reynaldo Lopez lost after allowing two runs, four hits and four walks to go with 10 strikeouts vs. the Athletics on Monday.
Spin: The White Sox fell 8-1 to right-hander Daniel Menhaden and the Athletics. Lopez has a 1.42 ERA with 21 strikeouts in 19 innings this season, but the White Sox have scored a total of three runs in his three starts.
Lopez's 10 strikeouts were one shy of his career high set Aug. 18, 2016, when he was with the Nationals. He capped off his outing by striking out the side in the sixth.
After blowing his fastball by Matt Olson and Matt Chapman for a pair of K's, he reared back for a Statcast-measured 97.5 mph fastball that Stephen Piscotty swung through on Lopez's career-high 106th pitch of the night.
He scattered only four hits in those six innings, but they were timely hits by the A's: a solo homer by Olson in the fourth on a fastball that missed over the heart of the plate, and a two-out RBI double by Khris Davis in the fifth. Oakland tagged the Sox bullpen for six late insurance runs, aided by four Chicago errors. (více...)
