Gavin Floyd and John Danks try to win the battle for the fifth starter in the Sox pitching rotation as the Sox go up I-10 at Peoria Stadium to play San Diego (3:05 p.m.). On Tuesday's game against the Rangers, Floyd started and Danks followed. Today, Danks will get the start and Floyd will follow. Each is scheduled to pitch 4 innings again. David Wells starts for the Padres. The game isn't televised but there is a radio broadcast on WSCR. Here are the lineups (Live Boxscore; MLB Gameday):
