The Venezuelan Pablo López, of the Miami Marlins, resumed the winning path this Wednesday night, after not knowing the victory since last May 7.
In seven innings of work, the 26-year-old Lopez limited the Colorado Rockies' bats to four hits. Despite the fact that they made him an unearned run, that he does not increase his effectiveness, and he gave away three walks, the Venezuelan starter struck out six rivals.
The native of Cabimas, Zulia state, made 107 pitches, 68 of them located in the strike zone, after facing 27 batters.
