Andrew Miller Looks to Shake Slump Sunday as Red Sox Face White Sox

The Red Sox halted Chicago's recent dominance over them, slugging their way to a 10-2 victory on Saturday night.

After his 25-game hitting streak was snapped Friday, Dustin Pedroia went 2-for-4 Saturday with an RBI. The second baseman is a career .321 hitter against the White Sox. Pedroia will be in his normal spot in the lineup Sunday, batting second.

Marco Scutaro also collected two hits Saturday to go with three RBIs, the most he's knocked in for a single game all season. The shortstop, who will be batting ninth, is batting .277 over his last ten games.

Following a rough June where he batted only .097, Darnell McDonald has heated up in July, batting .276 with two home runs and 10 RBI. McDonald will be getting the start in right field Sunday afternoon.

Pitching for the Red Sox is lefty Andrew Miller. After going 3-0 with a 3.57 ERA through four starts, Miller has a 9.00 ERA in his last three, despite a five-plus inning outing where he only allowed two hits. Still, the Red Sox have only dropped one of his seven starts.

White Sox ace Mark Buehrle will be facing off against the Sox. Buehrle has been one of the most consistent pitchers in the game over the past decade, as he has a 3.81 career ERA since his debut in 2000. The southpaw has a 6-6 career record against the Sox with a 4.57 ERA and 4.9 strikeouts per nine innings.
