Giolito (7-9) got the loss Wednesday, allowing seven runs on six hits and three walks while striking out two over five innings against the Yankees.
Much of the damage came in a six-run second inning, and the big blow came via a Giancarlo Stanton grand slam -- one of two home runs Giolito yielded. The 24-year-old seemed to be turning a corner of late with quality starts in four of his last five starts prior to Wednesday, but he's now been knocked around for at least five in two of his last three. Wednesday's outing pushes his ERA and WHIP back up to 6.23 and 1.50, respectively, to go along with just 84:71 K:BB over 125.2 innings. Next up is a road start in Detroit on Tuesday.
Giolito allowed one run on two hits and three walks while striking out six over seven-plus innings in Friday's 3-2 extra-inning win over the Rays.
Giolito had pitched brilliantly through seven innings, but gave up a leadoff double to begin the eighth and was pulled after 99 pitches with the White Sox up, 2-0. The bullpen couldn't protect the lead, snatching the win from Giolito. The outing was good enough to get his ERA under six for the first time since April 12, as the right-hander has tossed four quality starts in his last five appearances. His next start comes Tuesday at home against the formidable Yankees.
Giolito didn't factor into the decision in Saturday's 9-5 win over the Blue Jays, surrendering five runs on nine hits and a walk over 4.1 innings while striking out three.
It was a lackluster performance to say the least from Giolito, who needed 94 pitches (62 strikes) to record 13 outs and was on the hook for his ninth loss of the year before a late rally by the White Sox. The right-hander will carry a 6.26 ERA into his next start Friday in Tampa Bay.
Giolito (7-8) allowed three earned runs on five hits and four walks while striking out five across six innings to earn the win Monday against the Angels.
The Angels tagged Giolito for four extra-base hits but he managed to strand seven runners on base, highlighted by a bases loaded groundout by Albert Pujols to end the fifth inning. He has now recorded three consecutive quality starts. In that stretch, he has allowed five earned runs while striking out 14 batters, walking 10, and surrendering two home runs across 19.2 innings. To continue these results, he'll need to either cut down on his walks or continue to suppress home runs at a career-best rate.
Giolito (6-8) fired 6.1 scoreless innings Sunday, yielding three walks and two hits while striking out six and earning the win in the 10-1 victory over Kansas City.
Giolito has walked at least three batters in his last four outings, but Sunday was his first scoreless start of 2018. His ERA is still an unsightly 6.18, but that's the lowest it's been since his second start of the season. The 24-year-old has a 63:60 K:BB in 103.1 innings, including a 12:9 across 18.2 innings in July. If the White Sox keep their rotation in the same alignment after the All-Star break, Giolito will take on the Angels next Tuesday.
