Astros Vs. White Sox Lineups: Tyler Flowers Starts Behind The Plate

Coming off one of their best offensive performances of the year, the Chicago White Sox are hoping that Phil Humber can come through with a quality performance after weeks of inconsistency. Humber hasn't won a start at U.S. Cellular Field since June 2011, a losing streak that spans 13 starts.

Since pitching a perfect game on April 21, Humber has been abysmal for Chicago, posting a 7.38 ERA with 34 strikeouts and 24 walks over his past eight starts. Hopefully he'll be able to find some rhythm against a Houston lineup that's struggled lately.

Here's the lineup for Chicago:

  1. Alejandro De Aza, CF
  2. Gordon Beckham, 2B
  3. Adam Dunn, DH
  4. Paul Konerko, 1B
  5. Alex Rios, RF
  6. Dayan Viciedo, LF
  7. Alexei Ramirez, SS
  8. Tyler Flowers, C
  9. Orlando Hudson, 3B

And the lineup for Houston:

  1. Jose Altuve, 2B
  2. Brian Bixler, LF
  3. Jed Lowrie, SS
  4. J.D. Martinez, DH
  5. Brett Wallace, 1B
  6. Chris Johnson, 3B
  7. Brian Bogusevic, RF
  8. Justin Maxwell, CF
  9. Chris Snyder, C
