The Chicago White Sox had a very nice game on Tuesday night. It got a little hairy at the end but they managed to pull out the victory for their second win in a row. It came after a very exciting day. Eloy Jimenez made it clear that he is on track to return soon, they gave a very positive update on Luis Robert, Billy Hamilton came back, and Gavin Sheets made his MLB debut where he had two hits. However, the big story from the game now is Lucas Giolito’s postgame comments.

Lucas Giolito of the Chicago White Sox made some comments that will turn heads.

In the first inning, Lucas gave up a base hit to Luis Arraez. The very next hitter, Josh Donaldson, hit a ball to pluto which gave the Twins a 2-0 lead. It really wasn’t much of a surprise as the Twins can really hit so the White Sox knew they had some catching up to do. From there, Lucas Gioltio was amazing and the offense came all the way back to win.

Unfortunately, Donaldson thought it would be a good idea to make gestures and comments about “sticky stuff” as he rounded third and crossed home plate. Nobody really realized it at the time, especially Giolito. After his outing, however, he was made well aware of it and has some interesting comments in his postgame.

Giolito also went on to point out that the W is next to his name and that the Twins were in last place. It is all the truth about the way that the game turned out. Lucas clearly doesn’t appreciate what Donaldson had to say and why should he? It was very disrespectful towards a player who is pretty classy all of the time.

Giolito clearly wasn’t affected by the lack of sticky stuff in this one. He dominated the last-place Twins once again to get the White Sox to a 6-1 record over them. He doesn’t need anything sticky to dominate the Twins any more than he already does which is nice for the White Sox and their chances of winning the division.

It is interesting to hear Josh Donaldson make comments like this for the sake of his team as well. Every team in the league is transitioning away from using things and the Minnesota Twins are no different. You just have to wonder what the pitchers on the Twins think of this situation right now and how vocal/disprespectful Donaldson was towards Giolito.

All of it no longer matters, however. The White Sox know that Minnesota has an incredible offense and can win by driving the ball out of the park. Dylan Cease is going to face Bailey Ober in this one. You can expect both teams to do plenty of scoring in this game as they did in game number one. Hopefully, the White Sox continues to play well.
