Happy LucACE Giolito day, folks!

Lucas Giolito looks to continue his dominant, eight-game win streak (with a 0.94 ERA) into Wrigley Field tonight. Our guy Eloy Jiménez also looks to stay hot as he’s slashing .375/.444/1.000 with six home runs in his last nine games.

Jon Lester is the opponent for the night and his last two outings haven’t gone so well, giving up four runs to the St. Louis Cardinals and six to the Los Angeles Dodgers. Hopefully he will continue to struggle tonight. Us Sox fans want to celebrate the sweep and being .500 again.

Meanwhile, Carson Fulmer is back with the squad as Manny Bañuelos joins the 10-day IL with shoulder inflammation.

Lineups:

White Sox broadcast is on NBCSCH tonight, 7:05, with radio as usual at WGN.
