Houston Astros vs. Chicago White Sox, last game of the series. Last night the Astros took the lead, but the White Sox did the impossible to win. Although the White Sox scored the first run in the game, the Astros never gave up. The White Sox played the third with greater intelligence, and the help of Ivan Nova was key from the mount. On the other hand, Gerrit Cole could not do anything to avoid the disaster.
Houston Astros: Tonight we finish this story.
The Astros do not want to lose at home, much less want to tie the series. The first games were easy, but the third game with a single defensive error allowed the White Sox to humiliate the Astros at home. The third game ended 9-4. The first two runs were for the White Sox, but the Astros took the lead in the fourth inning. 3-2 before half but it did not help.
At home the Astros are scoring an average of 5.74 runs per game, 4.00 walks, 9.96 hits, 1.87 home runs, 15.70 left on base. The defense is allowing 3.70 runs per game, 2.48 walks, 10.30 strike outs, 7.09 hits, 1.39 home runs. Since 2005 the record against the White Sox is 27-27. In the last series against the White Sox, the Astros allowed 11 runs in 2018 at home. But they won all four games.
Corbin Martin will close the series tonight. He is the youngest pitcher of the Astros with 23 years of age. Single a victory in two games as a starter, without official defeats. 3.86 ERA, 9.1 pitched innings, 8 hits, 5 runs, 2 home runs, 9 strike outs and 1,393 WHIP.
Chicago White Sox: We can do something more.
The White Sox still have the chance to tie the series. But the team knows that it will be very difficult against the Astros on the road. Last night fortune was on the side of the team. The first run in the second inning, the second in the fourth inning and six runs in the sixth inning. The last run was in the eighth inning. Eloy Jimenez was the best of the White Sox with 3 runs, 2 hits and 2 RBI in 4 at bats.
The team is scoring up to 4.67 runs per game on the road, 2.62 walks, 8.17 hits, 1.21 home runs, 12.75 left on base. The defense allows up to 4.04 runs per game, 2.83 walks, 6.75 strike outs, 7.96 hits and 0.96 home runs. In the last 10 games on the road the White Sox allowed 30 runs.
Lucas Giolito, 24, is appointed tonight to play against the Astros. Five victories in six games, eight games as a starter. 3.35 ERA, 43.0 pitched innings, 32 hits, 18 runs, 3 home runs, 50 strike outs and 1,163 WHIP. On the road the record is perfect for Giolito with 4-0, the last victory against the Blue Jays 5-1.
