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 12 -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.
