White Sox Vs. Red Sox: Konerko Scratched, Fukudome In Left

The Chicago White Sox road to escaping their four-game series vs. the Boston Red Sox with a victory got even harder on Sunday morning with news that star DH Paul Konerko has been scratched from Sunday's line up thanks to a stiff neck. In his place will be Kosuke Fukudome, who is in left field today after Dayan Viciedo was shifted to DH.

Konerko has been absolutely mashing the ball so far in 2012, hitting .383/.444/.679 with five homers and 15 RBI. Fukudome, on the other hand, has been slightly less intimidating, hitting .227/.280/.273 in only 22 at-bats with the White Sox in 2012.
