Lucas Giolito, Wicked Sliders. 🤢🤢
Lucas Giolito said he was unhappy with the first half of the season. He spent the All-Star break vacationing with his wife to get away from baseball. He thinks this was his best start of the season.
“I wanted to come out with a vengeance in the second half"
Lucas Giolito, Filthy 82mph Curveball...and Sword. ⚔️
White Sox, at long last, beat the Astros, 10-1
Five homers, including Jake Burger’s first career blast, gave ample support to Lucas Giolito's fifth career complete game. Tim Anderson was a triple short of the cycle.
Sox are 55-36.
Lucas Giolito was masterful but might be overshadowed by five White Sox home runs, including Jake Burger's first career blast and Jose Abreu's 214th, tying him with Carlton Fisk for 4th all-time in franchise history. White Sox cruise, 10-1. Maintain 8 game division lead.
La Russa on Giolito: "I thought from the first pitch, his stuff was electric."
The White Sox are making great gains tonight in the battle of AL run differential supremacy. José Abreu’s three-run dong makes it 9-0 in the sixth. Lucas Giolito is pitching extremely well, and it seems like he didn’t even need to!
I hope the Giolito haters did NOT enjoy the game, fucking losers
Giolito will open against Milwaukee Friday, per La Russa, for those looking ahead
Giolito: "I didn't like how my first half went. I wanted to come out with a vengeance in the second half."
If not for Michael Brantley's one-out double in the first, Lucas Giolito would be staring at history. #WhiteSox
Giolito in to complete the victory
FINAL: White Sox 10, Astros 1
A complete game gem from Lucas Giolito, five home runs from the offense, and one electric crowd. @JoeBinder
has your recap from a statement win on the South Side.
Lucas Giolito was adamant in Minneapolis that a second half turnaround was coming.
“It doesn’t need to be too complicated. It’s just kind of like flipping a switch”
Giolito on @Burgatron13
: "I think his story is fantastic." He called his milestone the "first home run of many."

Abraham Toro breaks up Lucas Giolito’s shutout with a solo shot to left to make this a 10-1 game in the eighth. It’s the first baserunner Giolito has allowed since the first inning.
So much good in tonight’s game, but the story is Giolito. On the day that Lynn gets the extension, Gio goes out there and says, “I’m still here guys”. Great performance. The kids go deep, TA and Abreu too. Great to see the Rate rockin’ on the national stage. #changethegame
Where are all the "Giolito is the fourth starter" guys? Asking for a friend.
