Chicago White Sox at Boston Red Sox

  1. The Red Sox and White Sox meet for their second series of the year, with Boston taking three from the four-game set by a combined score of 34-11. A 15-2 win on May 4 marked the most runs Boston has scored in a game this season.
  2. Boston enters having won eight of its last 11 games but dropped two out of three at home against the Blue Jays over the weekend, falling to 18-19 (.486) at Fenway Park. With a road record of 24-18 (.571), the Red Sox have the fourth-largest negative differential between home and road win percentages (-.085) this season.
  3. Chicago has lost five of its last seven, and its starters have an ERA of 7.68 over that stretch. White Sox starters have the third highest ERA in the majors this season at 5.50.
  4. Chris Sale, scheduled to start Wednesday for the Red Sox, is 2-1 in three starts against his former team. In those starts he has punched out 29 batters in 19 innings for a strikeout rate of 13.74 per nine innings. His career strikeout rate against all other opponents is 10.74 per nine innings.
  5. Yoan Moncada has no extra-base hits in eight games in Fenway Park and has a career OPS of .573 at Boston. His 31 plate appearances at Fenway are his most in any ballpark without an extra-base hit.
  6. Andrew Benintendi was 8 of 16 and walked five times when the Red Sox visited the White Sox in May. His on-base percentage of .619 and OPS of 1.369 against Chicago is his highest against any single opponent this season.
  7. Tim Anderson has 91 consecutive plate appearances without drawing a walk, the longest active streak in the majors. Anderson has walked seven times in 273 plate appearances this season, tied for the fewest among hitters with at least 200 plate appearances (Hanser Alberto, Orioles).
Notes Applicable For Series Dates: 6/24/2019 thru 6/26/2019

Boston left-hander David Price will take the mound on six days' rest as the Red Sox host the Chicago White Sox in the second contest of a three-game set Tuesday.

Price (4-2, 3.39 ERA) threw just 73 pitches his last time out against the Minnesota Twins, allowing one run on four hits in five innings. After the game, Red Sox manager Alex Cora said the quick hook was designed to help "take care" of the 33-year-old, though he noted the move was not injury related.

"It was a collective decision," said Price, who spent time on the injured list earlier this season with left elbow tendinitis. "That wasn't on Alex. It wasn't on him. I'm feeling all right."

Price has reached 100 pitches just once in his last nine starts, in a win against the Tampa Bay Rays on June 8. He threw 97 in a no-decision against the White Sox on May 2, giving up three runs on seven hits in six innings.

For his career, Price is 6-5 with a 3.45 ERA in 16 starts against the White Sox.

Opposing Price will be fellow Vanderbilt alum Carson Fulmer (1-1, 6.35). The right-hander will get the nod as part of a bullpen day for Chicago.

Fulmer, like Price a former first-round draft pick, will make his first major league start since May 2018. He has reached three innings out of the bullpen in just two of his nine appearances this season.

Fulmer has faced the Red Sox twice in relief in his career, allowing five runs (three earned) in one total inning.

Boston rallied three times in winning the first game of the series Monday night. The Red Sox tied the score at 2-2, 3-3 and 5-5 before ultimately proving victorious when Marco Hernandez beat out an infield single with the bases loaded in the ninth inning.

"We were pleased we were scoring, but we let some chances slip away," Cora said. "There was a lot of stuff that didn't go right, but in the end, we won. That's the most important thing."

For Cora's squad on offense, Mookie Betts was among the bright spots with just his second home run in his last 11 games. For Chicago, former Red Sox Yoan Moncada had two hits, including his first homer of the season from the right side of the plate.

White Sox shortstop Tim Anderson went 0-for-5 with four strikeouts as his nine-game hitting streak ended.

"I think the story today was we really did put ourselves in a good position to win a ballgame," White Sox manager Rick Renteria said. "Both clubs ended up battling. Even though we had some shining moments, we ended up a little short."

With the win, the Red Sox avoided a three-game losing streak while sending the White Sox to their third straight defeat. Chicago has dropped six of its last eight games.

Prior to Tuesday's game, Boston is expected to activate knuckleball reliever Steven Wright for the first time this season. Wright was suspended the first 80 games after testing positive for a performance-enhancing substance during spring training.
