Notes: The Sox are like businessmen this weekend, making a quick trip here for three days before returning home ... Wakefield will be seeking his 200th career win against a team he has not done well against. Wakefield is 7-12, 4.97 in 33 career appearances against Chicago and 4-7. 4.83 in 18 games in the Windy City. He allowed four runs on seven hits over six innings against the White Sox in Boston June 1 ... Floyd is 5-0, 3.83 in seven career appearances against the Sox. He beat them June 1, allowing four runs over 6 2/3 innings ... Pedroia takes a 25-game hit streak into the game ... Ellsbury has a 10-game hit streak ... The White Sox are 23-26 at home.

Stat of the Day: The Sox are 5-13 against the White Sox the last three seasons and have lost six straight games in the series dating to last season. Chicago swept a three-game series at Fenway Park earlier this season.

Song of the Day: "Sweet Home Chicago" by The Blues Brothers.
