The White Sox, still sitting atop the AL Central Division, are only 3-4 in their last 7 games. The team will have an additional challenge on Thursday as they will need to find another way to score runs with their best run-producer over the past week -- 3B Kevin Youkilis -- is out with a tight hamstring. Utilityman Eduardo Escobar, hitting only .213/.298/.267, will take his place at third.
