In the span of eight days, Pablo López followed up his worst big league start with arguably his best. The 23-year-old showed the resolve to bounce back, and he sent a reminder that he can be a core part of the Marlins’ rotation.
Lopez matched career highs for innings (seven) and strikeouts (seven) and chipped in with a single in the Marlins’ 2-0 win over the Mets on Saturday at Marlins Park.
Lopez, Tayron Guerrero and Adam Conley combined for the organization’s 19th one-hitter, with the last coming on May 7, 2017, at the Mets. Jose Urena, David Phelps, Nick Wittgren and AJ Ramos combined for that one.
