Today’s matchup is between the Chicago White Sox (35-25) and the Oakland Athletics (36-24). The White Sox have won 1 of their last 5 games & the Athletics have won 2 of their last 5 games.

The White Sox are starting Lucas Giolito (RHP), on the mound who is 4-3 on the season pitching a 3.48 ERA, 3.19 FIP, .253 wOBA, K% of 33.7%, BB% of 9.7%, 87.0 MPH average exit velocity, and a 1.04 WHIP in 72.1 innings pitched.

The Athletics are starting Jesus Luzardo (RHP), who is 3-2 on the season with a 4.12 ERA, 4.19 FIP, .315 wOBA, K% of 23.8%, BB% of 6.9%, 88.9 MPH average exit velocity, and a 1.27 WHIP in 59.0 innings pitched.

The White Sox are the 8th best in the Majors in Relieving Pitching (WAR) while the Athletics are 6th.

On the hitting side, the White Sox have a .334 wOBA and a .326 OBP. The Athletics have a .314 wOBA and a .322 OBP. The White Sox have 96 HRs this season while the Athletics have 71 HRs.

Both of these teams seem to be in a little bit of a slump but I'm not too concerned on Chicago's part as at least they have been able to score despite the losses while Oakland hasn't really been able to.  The Athletics are coming off of a victory over Seattle but with Lucas Giolito the White Sox should be able to pick up the win here.
