Gamethread: Angels at White Sox

Gio-LIT-o: LWilz17 has found a gem in this shirt, so make sure you grab one of your own here!


Whether or not the Chicago White Sox can throw back-to-back complete games, Lucas Giolito is always slated to give the Good Guys a chance. Although the Los Angeles Angels are not in playoff contention, they have been the Sox’s sore thumb for the past few seasons. On paper, it should be a good matchup in the first game of a six-game homestand.

Luc-ace G-elite-o has been magic for the South Siders this season. Gio is 14-8 with a 3.30 ERA. He is also worth an outstanding 5.8 WAR! In the final month of the season, it would be something special to have Giolito close out his break out season on the up-and-up. As the ace of the staff, I wouldn’t expect anything less.

As for the opposition, Dillon Peters will take the mound for the Halos. Peters is the owner of a 3-2 record and a 4.13 ERA in 12 games this season. He has pitched 4, 4 2/3, and 6 1/3 innings in his last three starts, respectively. If the Sox can get to him early and wear down the Angels bullpen, it should hopefully be the start to a successful weekend series.

This is how the White Sox will line up against Peters:

José Abreu is back in the mix after a day off yesterday, so he’s back in his usual third spot of the order. Leury García was placed on the bereavement list, so he will miss the weekend series. Tim Anderson will bat leadoff, and Yoán Moncada will go back to the two-spot.

The Angels will order themselves as so:

Mike Trout and Shohei Ohtani bat second fifth, respectively. As major catalysts to this team, Giolito will look to shut them down before they can get started.

Tonight’s 7:10 CT ballgame will be broadcasted on NBC Sports Chicago Plus; just like always, WGN AM will provide the radio coverage. Although I have been a part of several Six Pack of Stats wins, I’m still looking for my game recap victory to whip out the sunglasses emoji — who is growing impatient as it awaits its curtain call. More importantly, South Side Hit Pen made its gamethread debut last month on August 15 against these same Angels; in a little month-span full circle, a win for that sake would be sweet!

Interesting! Mike Shirley is from Indianapolis and had a long history of hearing about former IU pitcher Jonathan Stiever, according to Garfien.

I am trying to figure out this new system. I seem unable to reply to comments, much less add video or whatnot.

I am a bit puzzled, I’ve installed/activated a ton of gVectors plug-ins: video, emoticons, widgets, advanced likes, media uploader. But none of that seems to be here yet. Should it take a bit to kick in?

Brett, don’t wanna be Captain Bringdown, but this Interface sucks. Period, but especially compared to SB Nation’s.

I recommend the men’s v-neck for the shirts. I also recommend bullpens not blowing leads so…

I guess I’m going to deactivate everything I just paid for in hopes of getting back to the slightly-improved comment system that the basic gVectors stuff.

Back to the basic system. What a waste of time.

OK, I believe the problem with the comments might be solved, so let’s see if the Twitter embeds went back to getting weird…

Brett Ballantini

The embeds are screwed up again. I’ll wait to see if they give me a solution as to how to restore them before deactivating this comment system again.

All better now.

Gio deserved better. Angels are a bad team yet like so many other bad teams they regularly beat the Sox. 7th game blown and lost where the Sox had a lead in the 7th inning or later. Gio should have easily had #15.
