The Chicago White Sox fell to Oakland A’s in a game played on Sunday afternoon. Lucas Giolito of the White Sox played brilliantly in the game as he struck out 13 batters and gave two runs over six innings but still, his team stood on the losing side.

He struck out seven batters and scattered four hits over seven innings of the game. It was a series finale and a huge crowd was watching the game.
