Joakim Soria slammed the door on the Athletics in the ninth inning on Friday, preserving a two-run advantage as the White Sox salvaged the second game of their doubleheader.

The veteran right-hander continues to look better and better in the ninth inning. He retired all three hitters that he faced in this one, two of them via the strikeout. He now owns a stellar 2.89 ERA and 1.11 WHIP on the season to go along with his 11 saves.

Lucas Giolito picked up his fifth victory of the year on Friday, allowing four runs on seven hits over seven-plus innings against the Athletics.

The right-hander racked up eight strikeouts on the night and walked only two. Matt Olson was responsible for the bulk of the damage against him, with a run-scoring single in the first and a solo blast in the sixth. This was one of the better overall outings of the year for Giolito who owns a troublesome 7.01 ERA and 1.61 WHIP. He's still too difficult to trust on a week to week basis for fantasy owners, even in an intriguing matchup against the Twins on Wednesday.

Zach Eflin yielded two runs over five innings in a 12-2 win over the Nationals on Friday.

Eflin gave up an RBI double to Michael Taylor and a sacrifice fly to Wilmer Difo in the second inning, but otherwise he was able to keep the Nationals off the board. He struck out five batters and issued just one walk in the victory. Eflin has had a great June, posting a 2.28 ERA and 22/4 K/BB ratio in 23 2/3 innings while winning all four of his starts. He deserves more attention than he’s getting in fantasy leagues.

Tanner Roark was tagged for six runs in 4 1/3 innings in a loss to the Phillies on Friday.

Roark threw 113 pitches and didn’t make it out of the fifth inning. All told, he allowed seven hits (including a homer) while walking four and striking out seven. He’s now given up 10 runs in 8 1/3 innings over his last two starts, bring his ERA up from 3.63 to 4.27 in the process. He’ll try to work deeper into his next start, which will also be against the Phillies, this time on the road.

Odubel Herrera had four hits and scored four runs while homering in his fifth straight game Friday against the Nationals.

Now that's a monster day. Herrera kept the streak alive with a two-run blast against Tanner Roark in the third inning. His other three hits fell for singles. The power is understandably getting most of the attention, but Herrera is also piling up the hits in general. He’s hitting .472 (17-for-36) over his last eight games. His batting average has soared from .283 to .308 during that time.

Carlos Santana went 2-for-4 with a homer, four RBI, two walks, and three runs scored in Friday’s blowout win over the Nationals.

Santana plated two runs with a single in the first before launching a two-run blast in the sixth. The 32-year-old is still hitting just .228 this year, but he’s put up 12 homers and a .360 on-base percentage while driving in 45 runs. He has a pretty good chance of pacing his career-high of 87 RBI as the cleanup man in this lineup.
Jun 22 - 11:17 PM

Nick Williams went 2-for-4 with three RBI and a walk as part of Friday’s win over the Nationals.

Williams knocked in a run with a single in the fifth inning before bringing home two more with a single in the eighth. The 24-year-old suffered a broken nose Monday after a ball bounced off the right field fence and hit him in the face, but fortunately the injury didn’t require an extended absence. Williams showed some signs of life in May, but he has struggled to keep it going this month. He’s batting .238/.308/.429 with eight homers and 24 RBI through 66 games.
Jun 22 - 11:17 PM

Michael Taylor went 1-for-4 with an RBI double, a run scored, and a stolen base Friday against the Phillies.

Taylor currently leads the majors with 22 steals. He’s already established a new career-high, topping his 17 steals from last year. The 27-year-old has produced a mediocre .243/.307/.396 batting line on the year, but he’s been excellent over the past month. Unfortunately, he’s found himself the odd man out in recent days with the Nationals trying to keep young sensation Juan Soto in the lineup.
