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.
