Giolito records a one-run quality start against the Tigers
With a dominant seven innings of three-hit, one-run baseball, Lucas Giolito exceeded all expectations for the evening. With an ERA close to 6.00, Lucas hasn’t had the kind of season expected from this young right-hander. It was even more impressive given the heavy rainfall for much of the game.
Giolito’s only run allowed was on a home run to Mickie Mahtook in the second. On the other hand, the White Sox managed five runs through the first three innings, all off of Ryan Carpenter, who exited after 4 1/3 innings.
From the fourth inning onwards I sat in a light rain until the end of the game. It was quite enjoyable as most of the crowd went home and I was able to stretch out, have a couple of beers and a Windy City Dog. It was a glorious evening.
