The Sox enter Saturday's game against the Diamondbacks looking to end a three game losing streak. After a successful homestand, the Sox have gone 0-3 on their current road trip and have scored just two runs total in those three games. Where has the offense gone? The pitching continues to be great, but two runs in three games isn't going to get things done.
John Danks will look to win his third start in a row when he gets the start on Saturday. Danks started the season losing all eight of his decisions in his 11 starts. Although winless he really didn't pitch that bad. In those 11 starts Danks allowed only five or more runs three times. The lefty has pitched great recently winning his last two starts improving his record to 2-8 on the season.
Zach Duke will start for the Diamondbacks in game two of the series. Duke has pitched well for Arizona with the exception of his last start against the Marlins in which he allowed seven runs. On the season, Duke is 1-1 with an ERA of 4.56. Saturday will be Duke's fifth appearance against the White Sox. In his previous four outings, Duke is 0-2 with an ERA of 5.61.
The forecast at the time of first pitch is temps in the 90's. First pitch is scheduled for 7:10 CST. The game can be seen on WGN.
