White Sox,Peavy Look To Cool Off Red Sox

In what many predicted to be the White Sox toughest road trip of the season, the Sox begin the final three games of the ten game trip with a visit to Fenway Park. After dropping two of three in Texas and three of four in Toronto, the White Sox face their toughest part of the trip with a three game stop in Boston beginning Monday evening.

The Red Sox are the hottest team in baseball. They are returning from a seven game trip in which they won six games. After an awful start to the season, the Red Sox are now in first place in the AL East with a 30-23 record.

Jake Peavy will start game one for the White Sox (24-31). Peavy is making his fourth start of the season after returning from shoulder surgery. He has pitched well for the White Sox this season with a 1-0 record and an ERA of 3.00. The White Sox have won in all three of Peavy's previous starts.

Boston will counter with their ace Jon Lester. Lester has been brilliant this season with a 7-1 record and an ERA of 3.36. His seven wins lead the American League.

The White Sox were 3-0 last season at Fenway Park.

First pitch of Monday's series opener is scheduled for 6:10 CST. The forecast at first pitch in Boston is temps in the 80's with a chance of storms. The game can be seen on CSN.
