White Sox Vs. Red Sox Preview: Philip Humber Returns From DL, Aims For Strong Start On Tuesday

Kevin Youkilis smacked a pair of doubles in his return to Fenway Park on Monday night, but the Chicago White Sox suffered through an eighth-inning bullpen collapse and lost the series opener to the Boston Red Sox, 5-1. On Tuesday, Philip Humber (elbow) returns from the disabled list and he's looking for a fresh start in the second half of the season. Since his perfect game back in April, Humber has struggled to string quality starts together and now owns a gaudy 6.01 ERA for 2012.

He will start opposite Jon Lester (5-6, 4.49 ERA), who has struggled at home this season. Lester is just 2-4 at Fenway Park in 2012, and he has posted a 5.80 ERA over 59.0 innings in home starts.
