Red Sox Vs. White Sox Lineups: Righties Start Against Lefty John Danks

The Red Sox will stack their lineup full of right-handed hitters as they take on the Chicago White Sox and southpaw starter John Danks Friday night in Chicago. First pitch is at 8:10 p.m. EST with broadcasts on NESN and WEEI.

The Sox' lineup has been on an absolute tear of late, destroying opposing starters with some regularity. While the Sox will have to switch gears tonight, throwing the likes of Kelly Shoppach and Darnell McDonald into the order to face Danks, their lefty mashers have been no slouches so far this year either.

The question will be whether or not Daniel Bard can maintain the momentum he had from his last start way back against the Rays after having his spot in the rotation skipped. Bard has so far silenced the doubters as a starter for the most part, but with tons of noise being made about the bullpen, another strong outing would go a long way towards securing his place.
