The White Sox have been pretty inconsistent this season and come into this game losers of four out of their last five games. Tampa Bay has a good record this season, but is still seven games behind the Yankees in the AL East. Giolito is coming off of a start where he allowed six runs over 4.2 innings, but only allowed four runs over his previous 18 innings. For the Rays, Yarbrough has allowed five runs in his last 12 innings pitched. One interesting note is that Tampa Bay is 0-5 in their last 5 games that Yarbrough has pitched in. I am taking the White Sox because I like Giolito a lot more than Yarbrough and the Rays seem to struggle when Yarbrough takes the mound.
