The Chicago White Sox's 2011 season was a wreck from the beginning to end, and that's especially clear as this year's team is already on the verge of a number of accomplishments it never achieved last season.

Heading into Tuesday's road game with the Tampa Bay Rays, the White Sox have a chance to extend their winning streak to seven games and improve to six games over .500 for the first time since the 2010 season.

Philip Humber (1-2, 5.80) will start for the White Sox on Tuesday, and James Shields (6-2, 3.63) will start for the Rays. Humber hasn't won a game since throwing a perfect game on April 21.

Here's a look at the White Sox's entire lineup for Tuesday:


1. Alejandro De Aza – CF
2. Gordon Beckham – 2B
3. Adam Dunn – DH
4. Paul Konerko – 1B
5. Alex Rios – RF
6. A.J. Pierzynski – C
7. Dayan Viciedo – LF
8. Alexei Ramirez – SS
9. Orlando Hudson – 3B
