White Sox Vs. Blue Jays: Starting Lineups For Thursday's Series Finale

The Chicago White Sox will look to wrap up their four-game set against the Toronto Blue Jays with a victory on Thursday night at Rogers Centre in Toronto, as left-hander Francisco Liriano will take the mound to close out the series.

Liriano will be making his fourth start in a White Sox uniform. He has picked up no-decisions in each of his last three outings. The last time Liriano toed the rubber, he was tagged for six earned runs over just 3.1 innings by a light-hitting Oakland offense, however, and the 28-year-old will need to be much sharper against a dangerous offense like Toronto's.

Slugger Adam Dunn enters after blasting his 34th home run of the season in Wednesday's 9-5 victory, and now leads the majors in homers. The bounce-back star will hope to keep his torrid pace going to close out the series against Toronto's Aaron Laffey, an inconsistent hurler who has already served up 10 home runs in just 61 innings pitched so far this year.

Here are Thursday's lineups:

1. DeWayne Wise - CF
2. Kevin Youkilis - 3B
3. Adam Dunn - 1B
4. Alex Rios - RF
5. A.J. Pierzynski - DH
