Playoff Gamethread: White Sox at A's, Game 1

Leigh Allan

A look at the lineup for the A's:

a's lineup

And for the Sox:

sox lineup

It's an ace defensive lineup for the White Sox, by design (Adam Engel) and injury (Leury García), which should play well in the expanses of Oakland Coliseum.

Oh, well, if Lucas Giolito is on his game, the lineup shouldn't matter.

ESPN has the coverage at 2 p.m. CT, WGN on the radio.

Hi, just checking in to complain about Ricky. Love sending Gio out for the eighth but you have to go get him after the walk. Also would have gone Bummer right away rather than Marshall.

Old friend alert with Joakim Soria in the pitch for the A's now.

AH! Stupid La Stella ruined the perfect game

Can we clone Giolito to solve the "Who starts Game 3 if we need it" question?

Uniform suggestion for the A's for 2021: green shoes, yellow laces

Another relatively quiet gamethread! Can never predict when this huge staff has got their commenting fingers running.

I'm going to think something is happening this game but I'm not saying it out loud because I'm superstitious

Pitching change from Luzardo to Wendelken came early in this game (4th).

I am not sad to be missing Chapman, not going to lie.

Jessica Mendoza is far better than any other national announcer

A BEAUTIFUL post-season homer from Adam Engel for the first run of the game!

Lucas makes it out of the scary first inning (with his 6.0 ERA in the first) so it should be smooth sailing for him from here on out.
