Red Sox Vs. White Sox Game 1 Lineups: Tanner Houck Makes Second Start Of Season

Houck was sharp in his season debut


The Red Sox and the White Sox will play two Sunday at Fenway Park.

Boston in Game 1 of the doubleheader will give the ball to Tanner Houck, who was appointed as the club’s 27th man for the twin bill. The early afternoon contest will mark Houck’s second start of the season. The 24-year-old impressed in his 2021 debut — two earned runs allowed over five innings with eight strikeouts — but he was saddled with a loss against the Baltimore Orioles.
