BALTIMORE (AP) — The Chicago White Sox want their young pitchers looking strong down the stretch as they eye a step forward in 2019.Reynaldo Lopez is doing his part.Lopez was sharp again Saturday night over seven innings to continue his late-season surge and lift the Chicago White Sox to a 2-0 victory over the Baltimore Orioles.The 24-year-old Lopez (6-9) has a 1.10 ERA over his past five starts. He struck out six and allowed four hits and a walk this time to help Chicago to just its sixth winning streak of at least three games.In his first full big league season [url=]Authentic Aaron Donald Jersey[/url] , Lopez has thrown 175 2/3 innings, and White Sox manager Rick Renteria has no plans to pull the reins back.“Basically, our eyes are telling us where they’re at,” Renteria said. “If you look at Lopy, he’s freaking throwing 97-98 mph. I’d be hard-pressed to tell you guys he’s really struggling.”Yolmer Sanchez broke a scoreless tie with an RBI double in the sixth, chasing rookie Yefry Ramirez (1-6) from his longest big league outing with two outs. Avisail Garcia tied a career high with his 18th home run in the ninth.Caleb Frare retired two batters in the eighth, and Juan Minaya got the last four outs for his first save as the Orioles were shut out for the 14th time this season.“It would have been a little different situation if we didn’t let them have that tack-on run,” Baltimore manager Buck Showalter said. “But you’re not going to win any games not scoring any runs.”Lopez was acquired from Washington after the 2016 season in the trade that sent outfielder Adam Eaton to the Nationals. The hard-throwing right-hander has been inconsistent since the deal but excellent down the stretch.“He’s showing you he’s got endurance, strength, (and) he’s gaining understanding of the situation, how to work and manage the situations, which is really big,” Renteria said. “It speaks a lot for him, because he continues to work and grind and learn.”He retired 13 out of 14 batters before Renato Nunez singled in the fifth and became the first runner to reach second on Lopez’s wild pitch. DJ Stewart popped out to end the threat.Two innings later, Lopez worked out of a two-on, one-out jam. He fanned Tim Beckham with a curveball to end a 10-pitch at-bat [url=]Aaron Donald Jersey Elite[/url] , then pumped his fist as Nunez popped his 104th pitch to second.“I was just trying to keep the control of the game,” Lopez said through an interpreter. “Sometimes the game is a little fast. And then you have to control it. You have to slow down. And I think that is what I did in that inning.”HARD-LUCK LOSSIn his first start in nearly a month, Ramirez was nearly as good, tying a career high with seven strikeouts while yielding four hits and a walk.“That is tough to do when you’ve not started and been in the bullpen,” Orioles catcher Caleb Joseph said. “Really nice job. It’s a shame we couldn’t push across anything for him there.”FOUR IS A CHARMThe victory was Chicago’s fourth win of the season over the Orioles, guaranteeing them the victory in the clubs’ season series for the first time since 2008.TRAINER’S ROOMWhite Sox: Renteria planned to play IF Matt Davidson (calf) at first base Sunday after giving him his first start in five games as the DH on Saturday. … RHP Nate Jones (right elbow) was not yet available to pitch back-to-back games after working an inning Friday in his second outing following a three-month layoff.Orioles: RHP Luis Ortiz left Friday’s game with a left hamstring injury and may need an MRI. … RHP Andrew Cashner (left knee) will not make his scheduled start Monday, manager Buck Showalter said after Saturday’s game.UP NEXTWhite Sox: Lucas Giolito (10-10) makes his first career start at Camden Yards. He allowed seven runs in 1 1/3 innings in his previous start against the Orioles on May 24.Orioles: David Hess (3-10, 5.17) has won just one of his last 15 starts. In his last start, Hess allowed six runs, just two earned in five innings at Tampa Bay on Sept. 8. Joseph Garnett Jr./Getty ImagesSunday was a relatively quiet day on the MLB trade front, with the most notable move being the Atlanta Braves' acquisition of Baltimore Orioles reliever Brad Brach.However, the non-waiver trade deadline of 4 p.m. ET on Tuesday, July 31 looms large, so chances are there will be a ton of movement over the next couple days.Here's a look at the latest rumors on three notable names.Chris ArcherThe biggest name left on the trading block may be Tampa Bay Rays starting pitcher Chris Archer, who has been the subject of numerous trade rumors recently.Jon Heyman of Fancred Sports has the latest:Jon Heyman JonHeymanrays had two scouts watching top yankees lip prospect justus sheffield yesterday, adding intrigue to chris archer rumors (as Joelsherman1 mentioned). another scout said: quot;was just ok ... fighting fastball command.quot; padres still seen as current favorites for archer -- if he goesMarc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Timesdiscussed what a possible deal for Archer could look like: "With the Rays advancing Saturday to weighing offers [url=]http://www... , the question ultimately will be whether a team is willing to give up enough now, with a catcher and power-hitting outfielder a good start to a package, to get the Rays to say yes rather than wait for the offseason, or longer, to deal him."Archer has been up and down in 2018. Only one of his first six outings was a quality start, but he bounced back in May and held the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim and Oakland Athletics scoreless in 12-plus combined frames. An abdominal strain kept him out for a month, but he returned healthy prior to the All-Star break.After allowing three earned runs in 3.1 innings against the Detroit Tigers in his first appearance back, Archer has a 3.86 ERA in three starts, including 23 strikeouts in 16.1 innings.At his best, Archer is a strikeout machine who can give a team seven-plus strong innings. Given that he's likely the best starting pitcher left on the trading block, he should return a sizable haul for Tampa Bay. Adam JonesThe Baltimore Orioles are clear sellers at this year's deadline, as they have already dealt the aforementioned Brach, shortstop Manny Machado and southpaw reliever Zach Britton.A few other names have been in the mix, including center fielder Adam Jones, a five-time All-Star who has been a mainstay in the Baltimore outfield for a decade.However, it doesn't look like Jones is going anywhere for now [url=]http://www.l... ,per Heyman:Jon Heyman JonHeymanthere was a chance to go to Philly, but Adam Jones has decided to stay in Baltimore (at least for now) due to reasons of family, friends, fans and his charity. cant blame him for that. tough call, he appreciates the interest. possibility to revisit after the deadline also.Of course, the reasons for Jones wanting to stay are certainly legitimate, especially given that he's established roots in Baltimore since 2008. If he ever happens to change his mind, a playoff-contending team would be getting a solid outfielder who could plug a gap in a team's lineup. For the season, the 32-year-old Jones is hitting .285 alongside 11 home runs and 44 RBI.He's also in the midst of a hot streak at the moment, per Baseball-Reference, as Jones has 13 hits in his last 32 at-bats and earned a 1.020 OPS during that span.Jones is a free agent after this season, and given the team's rebuilding direction, it's unlikely that he'll be an Oriole in 2019. Comments from general manager Dan Duquette didn't sound promising: "(Jones') contract is up. I don鈥檛 know whether Adam will be here or not, but the club is going in the direction of younger ballplayers. I can tell you that."Ultimately, when Jones leaves town, chances are it will be via free agency in the offseason.Keone KelaTexas Rangers closer Keone Kela has saved 24 games in 25 appearances. He's just 25 years old and has to deal with the obstacle of pitching in Globe Life Park in Arlington [url=]http://www... , which is one of the most notorious hitter parks in the league, half the time.In other words, he's a hot commodity as the trade deadline nears, and naturally, a few contending teams are interested.Per Ken Gurnick of, the Los Angeles Dodgers are in the mix:Ken Gurnick kengurnickPlease add Rangers closer Keone Kela to the seemingly endless list of players the Dodgers are looking at before Tuesdays trade deadline.Per Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports and The Athletic, and Joel Sherman of the New York Post, the Atlanta Braves are also involved:Ken Rosenthal Ken_RosenthalHearing same. Per sources, the interest is in potentially both Kela and Diekman. #Braves willing to move Gohara. Z8e9dpMo3XThe Braves have a much bigger need for Kela than the Dodgers. Closer Aroldys Vizcaino is on the disabled list, and manager Brian Snitker said on July 23 that the 27-year-old was still two to three weeks away from throwing. That means Vizcaino likely won't start doing so until the second or even third week of August.As is, the team's bullpen has not fared particularly well this year, as it is currently ranked 20th in team ERA. The addition of Brach could certainly help, although the team may need more reinforcements, especially if Vizcaino is out until September. As it stands, a Braves-Rangers deal involving Kela seems like a real possibility.
