Notes: Miller has allowed 15 earned runs on 17 hits and 17 walks in his last 17 innings. He is 0-1, 9.58 in three career appearances against Chicago. Today is not necessarily a final chance to stay in the rotation. But how long can the Sox keeping running him out there with poor results? … Buehrle is a modest 6-6, 4.57 in six career appearances against the Sox. He faced them twice last season and allowed eight runs on 21 hits over 13 innings. … Gonzalez has hit in nine straight at 21 of 38. … The Sox are 1-4 against Chicago this season. The teams will not meet again unless it’s the postseason.


Stat of the Day: The Sox are 19-6 in July. They last 20 games in a month in May of 2007 when they won 20.

Song of the Day: “Let’s Call The Whole Thing Off” by Louis Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald.
