Now, hes an All Star, the ace of the South Side staff and probably cruising toward some votes of some fashion in the AL Cy Young race. Its so incredible that perhaps White Sox fans dont even realize it anymore. But at this time last year, Giolito was wrapping up the worst statistical season of any qualified starting pitcher in baseball.

This will be Leakes second career start against the White Sox. Yusei Kikuchi went five innings, allowing six runs, four earned, on seven hits while striking out four, not factoring in the decision. Cory Gearrin ended up with the loss to fall to 0-1 while Zac Rosscup received the blown save. Mike Leake will start game two and is 1-0 with a 3.00 ERA and 7 strikeouts this season. Ryon Healy led the Ms with three RBIs including a home run while Mitch Haniger and Domingo Santana each had a home run and two RBIs. Daniel Vogelbach went 2 for 4 with a solo home run while Omar Narvaez went 3 for 4 at the dish and Tim Beckham added a double as well in the losing effort. The Seattle Mariners will be looking to respond after dropping game one on Friday by a final score of 10-8.

Bruce should supply solid power totals and not-so-solid anything else throughout the 2019 season. This gives Bruce five homers on the season, and he's now slugging .604 on the young campaign. Jay Bruce went 2-for-5 with two homers in the Mariners' 9-2 victory over the White Sox on Saturday. Bruce hit a solo shot in the fourth inning off of Lucas Giolito, and went deep again off Manny Banuelos in the ninth. He's also hitting just .189, but hey, dingers.

Mariners LH Marco Gonzales (10-5, 3.41): Gonzales won his third straight start on July 11, allowing two hits without issuing a walk over seven innings in a 3-0 road victory against the Los Angeles Angels. Gonzales tossed six scoreless innings and registered eight strikeouts in a 1-0 road victory over the White Sox on April 24. The 26-year-old has worked six-plus frames in 13 of his last 15 starts, going 9-3 with a 2.70 ERA, 79 strikeouts and 19 walks over that stretch.

Expect Jimenez to start putting the ball over the fence shortly, but like most rookies, there are going to be some bumps in the road. Eloy Jimenez went 3-for-4 in a loss to the Mariners on Saturday. All three hits were singles. Jimenez came into the game struggling, but this is a nice reminder that he's capable of doing damage with the hit tool; he's not just a power hitter.

X-factor:Kikuchi is probably the obvious choice here. He also led the American League with 10 triples (tied with Yolmer Sanchez) and got on base at a .367 clip. How he fares in 2019 won't be of quite as much interest as how Shohei Ohtani did last year, but the potential is still there for him to be a heck of an addition. But I'll once more refer to Mallex Smith, who stole 40 bases last season with the Rays.

Tim Beckham has taken the lead for his team in batting with an average of .353 along with 12 hits. LeBlanc is 1-0 this season with a .675 ERA, 1 Ks and 3 BBs. Seattle Mariners are holding a batting average of .263 at the plate and opposing hitter are averaging at .235. Domingo Santana is the leader in home runs with four and RBIs with 13. The Mariners will be sending left-handed Wade LeBlanc to the mound on Sunday.

Reynaldo Lopez allowed six runs on six hits while walking four and striking out five over five innings of work, not factoring in the decision. The Chicago White Sox will look to build on their solid game one performance on Saturday. Lucas Giolito will start game two and is 1-0 with a 2.70 ERA and 8 strikeouts this season. This will be Giolitos first career start against Seattle. Yoan Moncada led the White Sox with four RBIs, going 2 for 4 with a double while Tim Anderson went 3 for 4 with a home run and three RBIs. Leury Garcia and Jose Abreu each chipped in a base hit to cap off Chicagos offense in the win. Ryan Burr picked up the win to improve to 1-0 while Alex Colome picked up his 2nd save of the season. Welington Castillo added an RBI while Jose Rondon and Adam Engel each added a double.
