Tampa Bay Rays up next: Chicago White Sox


vs. White Sox

Today through Sunday

What's new: The White Sox (20-26) have been disappointing, with a big reason being their struggles on the road where they have lost 12 of their past 19. Their team ERA of 4.52 ranks 12th in the American League. Alex Rios is hitting well (.308) and Mark Kotsay went 5-for-12 in a three-game series against Cleveland.

Key stat: The White Sox bullpen has worked 191/3 innings in the past four games.

Connections: Rays bench coach Dave Martinez is a former White Sox outfielder. White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen is a former Ray, and C A.J. Pierzynski is a former Hernando County resident.

Series history: The Rays took two of three in Chicago on April 20-22, outscoring the White Sox 22-2 in the final two games. They have won 12 of the past 21 games against Chicago, including the 2008 postseason. The White Sox lead all-time 57-40, including 28-22 at Tropicana Field.
