Red Sox vs. White Sox lineup: We hereby call the scoring runs play

The Sox have scored four runs over two games and have blown a lot of chances. That might stop today.

MLB: Detroit Tigers at Boston Red Sox
More of this, please.

The Red Sox (44-21) look to take the series against the White Sox (21-41) this afternoon at Fenway Park (1:05 p.m. NESN, MLBN out-of-market) behind Rick Porcello (8-2, 3.59 ERA).

About today’s game: Porcello will square off against Reynaldo Lopez (1-4, 3.42 ERA), whom almost none of the Red Sox have faced. Of yesterday’s starters, only Eduardo Núñez has logged a plate appearance against the Chicago righty — he’s 2-3 with 2 RBI. And he’s not playing. Mitch Moreland is back, Mookie Betts is not, Brock Holt’s at second and Sandy León is behind the plate.

About yesterday’s game: David Price was good, J.D. Martinez hit his league-leading 21st homer and I wrote a (mostly) rhyming recap you can read here.

Forecast: Nice af.

Today’s reading: It’s Sunday. I forbid you from reading.
