5:25 p.m.: Jacoby Ellsbury is still leading off for the Red Sox. Take a look at Wednesday’s lineups below. Red Sox (27-19) Jacoby Ellsbury, CF Jonny Gomes, LF Dustin Pedroia, 2B David Ortiz, DH Mike Napoli, 1B Daniel Nava, RF Will Middlebrooks, 3B Stephen Drew, SS Jarrod Saltalamacchia, C Clay Buchholz, RHP (6-0, 1.78 ERA) White Sox (21-23) Alejandro De Aza, CF Alexei Ramirez, SS Alex Rios, RF Adam Dunn, DH Paul Konerko, 1B Dayan Viciedo, LF Conor Gillaspie, 3B Jeff Keppinger, 2B Tyler Flowers, C Hector Santiago, LHP (1-2, 2.78 ERA) 8 a.m. ET: The Red Sox’ offense sputtered again on Tuesday, and Boston lost its second straight game against the White Sox. Clay Buchholz will now be asked to fend off a sweep while trying to end the Red Sox’ nine-game road trip on a positive note. Boston is 5-3 on its current trip, but it’d be hard to get too fired up about the overall results if it ends with a three-game sweep in the Windy City. The Sox were riding high after taking care of business in Minnesota, but they haven’t been able to come up with timely hits in Chicago, and now they’re once again staring a mini skid in the face. Buchholz will be making his fourth attempt at picking up win No. 7. He still owns a perfect 6-0 record, but he’s received a no-decision in each of his last three starts. Buchholz gave up two runs over seven innings in his last start against the Twins on Friday, but the Red Sox needed 10 innings to pick up a 3-2 victory. Buchholz will go up against Hector Santiago on Wednesday. Wednesday’s game will kick off at 8:10 p.m. Be sure to tune in on NESN, and follow all of the action right here as well.
