Giolito Tough Luck Loss, then ChiSox rally in nightcap with 3 late HRs

White Sox ace Lucas Giolito finally debuted in our game, but had a tough luck loss as Toronto moved into 1st place with a 7-4 sweep win (led by 5 runs after 8 innings). 

Giolito should have had a 1-0 lead after 3 innings, but 2nd baseman Harrison (below average CD2) misplayed a grounder into a hit, and Guerrero then hit a 3-run homer.

More bad luck in the next inning, as Jansen hit a deep drive, and the 62 on the next card would have been a deep fly out in most parks, but was a HR in Toronto (an 11-68 home run park range). The Blue Jays received credit for a 3 games to 0 sweep for leading by 5 runs after 8 innings without using their closer.

The White Sox did rally in the second game to get credit for a 2 games to 1 win and thus lost the series just 2-4.

Trailing 3-0 in the top of the 7th, the Sox hit 3 homers in 8 batters (Grandal, Sheets and Anderson) for the win.
