Six Pack of Stats: White Sox 4, Twins 0

Ace of the staff: Lucas Giolito displayed his best stuff — against the best team in the A.L. Central — for a brilliant complete game shutout. (FanGraphs)


When someone shuts out one of the best major league teams of the season, he deserves some glory. For the numbers of the game, it’s all about the masterful Luc-ace G-elite-o!

27

Lucas Giolito, without a doubt, was the player of the game. No. 27 notched all 27 outs in his third complete game of the 2019 season. He now leads the Chicago White Sox in that category, breaking a tie with Iván Nova.

12

Of the 27 outs recorded by Giolito, 12 came via the strikeout.

3

That makes three straight starts with at least 10-plus strikeouts, for a grand total of 36! That is incredible!

2

Today’s scoreless opponent, the Minnesota Twins, joins the Houston Astros as the second team this season (and in his career) that G-elite-o has kept scoreless in a shutout.

0

Per the post game interview with Luc-ace, he claimed that he “didn’t shake [off James McCann] once.” That is some pitcher-catcher wizardry, and I am so here for it!

.380

Ultimately, what do all the above numbers add up to? A series win for the White Sox and an outstanding .380 WPA for Gio. The next-highest of the game? José Abreu’s .194. Lucas simply got the job done, and he did so brilliantly!
