Chicago White Sox starting pitcher Lucas Giolito picked up another quality start on Tuesday versus the Minnesota Twins. Giolito allowed four hits, two runs, three walks and struck out nine over six innings. Giolito was hurt by a pair of solo home runs by Marwin Gonzalez and Jonathan Schoop in the second inning, but cooled down afterwards. Giolito will face a tough Atlanta Braves offense on Sunday.
Chicago White Sox starting pitcher Lucas Giolito threw a complete-game shutout versus the Minnesota Twins on Wednesday. Giolito struck out 12 and only allowed three hits and no walks for his 14th win of the season. The 25-year-old has been dealing in August with a 2.33 ERA and 44 strikeouts this month. Giolito's next start will likely be against the Twins again on Tuesday, this time at home.
Chicago White Sox pitcher Lucas Giolito was filthy on Sunday against the Athletics, striking out a baker's dozen and allowing only five hits in six innings. But Oakland made one hit count, with Matt Olson clubbing his 23rd home run of the year in the fourth inning, driving in Matt Chapman. Those two runs were enough to hand Giolito the loss but the breakout pitcher left no doubt about his swing-and-miss stuff. Giolito goes on the road for his next start, traveling to Los Angeles to face Mike Trout and the Angels.
