In the first López vs. López matchup in MLB history, the White Sox’ López came out on top. Reynaldo López got his first quality start of the season, as he executed his pitches much better than he did in any of his first three outings. His fastball reached 96.8 and averaged 94.9, and his command of this pitch was solid. His breaking balls were also effective, as he got five swinging strikes on twenty sliders and four swinging strikes on twenty changeups.
Reynaldo López was the first to allow a run, as he gave up a solo homer to Lucas Duda in the second.
