Giolito has been having a break out year and I love the guy, but not today. This cubs lineup has been rolling and I like how lester lines up against the white sox. While I do think Giolito is a stud, I feel he's going to have a little regression so I'll take my chance here. Now this doesn't mean he's going to blow up and give up 10 runs out of no where, but he should give up a few runs and I like the cubs odds to win this one.70%

Chicago White Sox (52% consensus). Eloy Jimenez haunted his former organization in the series opener with a game-winning, two-run homer, and he looks to help the Chicago White Sox finish a two-game sweep of the host Chicago Cubs on Wednesday. Jimenez, one of four prospects obtained when the White Sox traded Jose Quintana to the Cubs in July 2017, hit his blast in the top of the ninth to give the White Sox a 3-1 win... http://bit.ly/2uBU5tM

Fansided: Chicago Cubs betting odds of second game versus the White Sox
The Crosstown Classic kicked off in disappointing fashion for the Chicago Cubs. Cole Hamels looked great, AGAIN and the bullpen gave away another close game. Eloy Jimenez took Pedro Strop deep to give the White Sox a 3-1 lead late Tuesday night.
Looking on to game two, this is a pitchers dream matchup. Two pitchers, Jon Lester and Lucas Giolito who are on top of their game. Lester has thrown the ball very well this year with two rough games against the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Houston Astros (quite good offenses).

So, @SouthSideSox has a lot of fun with Twitter, and sometimes, when controversy reigns or celebration ensues, it's fun to look back on the timeline and relive what transpired. Consider this your virtual tailgate party before Wednesday's finale.

Bleed Cubbie Blue: White Sox 3, Cubs 1: Eloy's coming
Not one word, you hear? Not. One. Word.
I do not want to hear one single word this morning about the trade that sent Eloy Jimenez, among others, to the White Sox two years ago for Jose Quintana.
Because no, two years ago you did not know that Jimenez would hit a two-run homer at Wrigley Field to defeat the Cubs 3-1 in the very first game he played against the team that originally signed him.
The guy has talent. Stipulation granted. I am much more concerned today about two other things:Why could the Cubs not score more than one run off a guy who had posted a 6.
Chicago Sun-Times: Cubs-White Sox rivalry has lost its luster
In 2006, Cubs catcher Michael Barrett punched White Sox catcher A.J. Pierzynski after the two collided at home plate. Less than two months later, Cubs fans threw plastic bottles, cups and other debris onto the warning track in the outfield after Pierzynski hit a ninth-inning homer to send the Sox to victory.
That year in particular is an iconic chapter in the Cubs-White Sox rivalry.
But lately, the Crosstown Series has become more of a media event than anything, and the rivalry between Chicago's two MLB teams is nowhere near as intense as it used to be.
Cubs Insider: Chicago Cubs Score and Recap (6/18/19): White Sox 3, Cubs 1 - Eloy Jimenez Makes Loud Wrigley Debut
The Cubs kicked off the Crosstown Cup against the White Sox with Cole Hamels on the mound against struggling righty Ivan Nova. The Cubs have been dominating at Wrigley Field this year (24-11) and looked to keep up that momentum against an opponent that figured to be weaker than those they'd just faced out West.
Hamels began the game looking shaky, loading the bases in the top of the 1st inning. However, he quickly settled down before any damage could be done and cruised through seven innings with eight strikeouts. He made history in the top of the 3rd inning by striking out Nova to become the 10th lefty in MLB history to reach 2,500 strikeouts.
