Lucas Giolito turned in a nice performance on Wednesday afternoon, striking out 11 Twins over 8 innings. It was the second start of the season Giolito has struck out at least 10 batters and the twelfth in his career. With the outing, Lucas moves into a tie for fifth place all-time on the franchise leaderboard. He’s three off from third place and six off from second place, so it isn’t inconceivable that he’s in the top-3 by season’s end.
Today’s Sporcle will examine other pitchers throughout franchise history that have logged multiple games of 10 or more strikeouts during their White Sox career. To qualify, the pitcher in question much have turned in at least 3 such games. That leaves us with 33 names: how many can you get? Good luck!
- I’ve allotted 10 minutes for completion attempts.
- For hints, I’ve provided the tenure of the pitcher in question, and the number of 10+K games they logged.
Useless information to amaze, annoy, confuse, and/or confound your friends and family:
- The White Sox’ team record when these pitchers have recorded their 10+K games? 176-78.
- The average ERA of the players on this list is 1.63.
- The MLB player with the most such games in his career? You guessed it: Nolan Ryan, with 215. Randy Johnson is close behind, with 212 while third place belongs to Roger Clemens with *only* 110.
