2 units on Chicago +108 (moneyline) (risk 2 to return 2) RESULT: LOSS
The Red Sox have beaten up on some teams at home this season, but not recently. They have lost seven of their last nine at Fenway to teams with a winning record. The White Sox are in a dogfight with Minnesota in the Central, holding just a half game lead. They send Mark Buehrle to the mound who has finally begun to pitch as expected and they have now won his last four starts. The Red Sox will use Michael Bowden to make his first major league start. Bowden dominated at AA but was less successful at AAA Pawtucket with a 4.15 ERA. We like the White Sox as a live dog here.
