Chicago White Sox Line Up: Fukudome, Escobar Get The Call

The Chicago White Sox are more or less going with what has worked this weekend vs. the Detroit Tigers, with a few minor changes. Alex Rios and Gordon Beckham, both of who are one again off to slow starts, are getting the day off, with Kosuke Fukudome and Eduardo Escobar, respectively, slotted as their replacements.

Otherwise, the White Sox's batting order is the same as it has been in the series, and despite slow starts as well from Brent Morel and Adam Dunn, it's hard to fault Robin Ventura for going with what has worked:

Here's today's line up:

  1. Alejandro De Aza, CF
  2. Brent Morel, 3B
  3. Adam Dunn, 1B
  4. Paul Konerko, DH
  5. A.J. Pierzynski, C
  6. Alexi Ramirez, SS
  7. Kosuke Fukudome, RF
  8. Dayan Viciedo, LF
  9. Eduardo Escobar, 2B
