Dallas Keuchel - LHP Lucas Giolito - RHP

After receiving very little run support from his lineup in his last start against Seattle, Dallas Keuchel will have to put a tough loss behind him and focus on the positives from his most recent outing. Keuchel was very effective in that game, hitting his locations on the corners and generating strikeouts with breaking pitches. In this one, he'll hope the Astros can manage more than one or two runs against a weaker White Sox starter and bullpen.
