Lucas Giolito, Jon Lester Set to Battle As White Sox Face Cubs


The Chicago Cubs and White Sox split the first two games of their season series earlier this year, and they’ll renew acquaintances on Saturday as they kick-off a two-game set at Guaranteed Rate Field.

The Cubs, who lost three of four games to the Pittsburgh Pirates earlier this week, are hoping to go into the All-Star break on a high note, but the White Sox are pushing to get back to the .500 mark before the midsummer break takes place.
