Jose Berrios takes the mound tonight against Reynaldo Lopez on a hot Minnesota fall day. Berrios seems to be figuring it out again after a poor stretch, firing seven innings of scoreless ball last time out against the Nationals. Lopez has had an up and down season with a pretty poor 5.35 ERA, but he sports a 3.93 mark since the all-star break and recently tossed a complete game against the Indians in which he allowed just one run.
Lopez has been pretty good against the Twins with a 3.46 ERA in four starts. However, there may have been some luck involved in the past, as the Twins have an astoundingly low .184 BABIP against Lopez. You can see how the Twins individual batters have performed against Lopez here.
