Giolito's 3-hit shutout gives White Sox 4-0 win over Twins

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) The Minnesota Twins have been in first place in the AL Central for all but 13 days this season, a perch the Chicago White Sox have been aiming for during this extended rebuilding project.

If they can make that big jump in 2020, Lucas Giolito will surely be a major factor.

Giolito pitched a three-hit shutout of the second-highest scoring team in the major leagues, racking up 12 strikeouts for the White Sox on Wednesday in a 4-0 victory for their first series win over the Twins in two years.
