As we inch closer to All-Star Weekend, the White Sox and Orioles meet up for game two of the Oriole Park series. Chicago took the opener yesterday by a score of 12-1, and they look to add to a 7 1⁄2 -game lead in the AL Central. At 26 games out of first in the AL East, the Orioles look to snap a two-game losing streak.
Lucas Giolito is starting for the White Sox, in what will be his 18th start on the season. Giolito has pitched against Baltimore once this year: On May 30, Giolito pitched seven innings of one-run ball, striking out 12 Orioles batters and being credited with the win.

Thomas Eshelman is on the hill for the Orioles. This will be Eshelman’s fifth start since being called up on June 18. Eshelman’s season debut was his longest outing, pitching 4 2⁄3 innings and giving up an earned run.
Let’s take a look at Eshelman’s percentile numbers:
