Despite great dominance in his thirteenth outing of the season, victory seemed elusive to Pablo Lopez this Wednesday. The Minnesota Twins, the Venezuelan team, were left on the field 2-1 by the Tampa Bay Rays.
López went seven full innings, allowing five hits, one earned run on a home run, one walk and six strikeouts.
The run allowed by the Zuliano was thanks to a home run in the second inning by Isaac Paredes that made the score 1-0 in favor of the Rays.
The Twins' offense saved Pablo López from taking the loss in the ninth inning. Royce Williams hit a one-run single to tie the game at 1-1.
In the bottom of that same inning, a home run by Randy Arozarena sealed the victory for Tampa Bay.
Lopez dropped his ERA to 4.25 and went without a decision, keeping his record at 3-3 in 13 starts.
The victory went to Jason Adam. The defeated pitcher was Jhoan Duran.
