The Red Sox (14-17) touch down in the Windy City to start a four-game series on the South Side against old friend Yoan Moncada and the White Sox (13-15) tonight at 8:10 p.m. For a long time White Sox games started at 7:11 Central Time as a 7-11 promotion, but no longer. So be early.

The Sox have been hitting the bejeezus out of the ball and, as a team like that is wont to do, will send its hot-hitting players back out into the field.

David Price starts for the Sox, and he’s been pretty good recently, taking the loss last weekend despite a six inning, two-run performance. The lineup is cooking and exactly what you’d expect, and not just because you’ve already seen it.

Yoan Moncada, one half of the trade package that brought Chris Sale to Boston, will play third and bat fifth for the Chisox. Moncada’s off to a blistering .301/.368/.540 in the early going, having severely cut down on his strikeouts after leading the league last year. Despite his hot start he’s not Chicago’s most accomplished hitter so far this year — that would be the sublime Tim Anderson, who’s hitting .900 with 10 homers or something — nor its best hitter, veteran first baseman Jose Abreu.
