At Guaranteed Rate Field on Monday night, a Minnesota Twins player hit a pop fly down the left-field line.

The White Sox on Tuesday officially called up right-hander Lucas Giolito, who will make his team debut when he starts against the Twins in the evening.

Chicago White Sox infielder Yoan Moncada is starting on Tuesday against the Minnesota Twins.

The victory was the second straight and sixth in seven games for the Twins (65-60), who are 13-4 in their past 17 games.

The No. 59 prospect in baseball, Giolito joined the Sox in the offseason in the Adam Eaton trade, which also netted the Sox Lopez and Dane Dunning.

Giolito is 6-10 with a 4.48 ERA in 24 starts this season in Triple-A Charlotte but has rebounded with a 3-1 record and 1.71 ERA his last five starts.

Not only are the White Sox in the early stages of a complete rebuild, but fan etiquette apparently doesn't exist.

Featuring his big curve ball and a 93-mph fastball, Giolito - who made four starts with the Nationals last season - hit leadoff man Brian Dozier on the side with a 2-2 pitch but looked poised and relaxed throughout.

Polanco led off the fourth inning with his sixth homer of the season after going deep in both ends of a doubleheader Monday. I don't think it really factors in that they're in the big leagues now and facing big league hitters.

Rodon (2-4) allowed two runs on four hits while walking three.
