The series opener ended with fireworks! After Nicky Delmonico’s walk-off, three-run shot to right-center field, the Boys in Black are looking to make it two in a row against the Boston Red Sox, and three in a row overall.

Reynaldo López is on the bump for the Chicago White Sox. López holds a 2-3 record and a 6.03 ERA. He comes back from his best outing of the season (14 strikeouts, one run, zero earned, and only two hits allowed), on April 28 vs. the Detroit Tigers.

Here is Chicago’s starting lineup:

Chris Sale starts for the opposition. Sale, currently 0-5, has a 6.30 ERA. He looks for his first win of the season, and what better way than to get it against his former team? Hopefully, for our sake, he goes winless for just one more outing.

Here is Boston’s starting lineup:

Game starts at 7:10 p.m. CT. The game will be broadcasted on NBC Sports Chicago and WGN-AM.
