White Sox at Red Sox Lineups: Wacha is out, Houck is in

Left side soreness keeps Wacha off the mound for this one.

It’s another day ending in Y, so that means the Red Sox are trying to rebound after a lackluster offensive performance from the night prior. Last night, they scored just one run in 10 innings en route to a 3-1 loss that drove them into sole possession of last place.

The Red Sox will try to stave off extending a losing streak that is already tied for their longest of the season and avoid a sweep at the hands of the White Sox today. Michael Wacha, who has yet to allow a run at Fenway this season, was scheduled to take the mound hoping to improve upon his 3-0 record, but he was a late scratch due to left side soreness. Tanner Houck will start in his place.

The Mother’s Day fun will start early — first pitch is at 11:35 a.m. — and it won’t be on NESN. NBC and Peacock are broadcasting it while NESN carries the Bruins game. Here’s how both teams will lineup.
