Saturday’s game against the Los Angeles Dodgers is one the Chicago White Sox and their starting pitcher Philip Humber could really use.

As a team, the White Sox have struggled as of late. While they’ve been able to hold onto first place in the American League Central thanks to the Cleveland Indians’ own troubles, the White Sox have dropped seven of their last 10 games and lost their last three in a row. On Friday, they lost to the Dodgers 7-6 after previously leading 5-1.

Humber hasn’t been much help to the White Sox as of late either. He’s allowed five earned runs in three of his last four starts, and his ERA has risen to 5.92. He’s 2-4 on the season.

Here’s a look at the White Sox’s lineup against the Dodgers and their starter Chad Billingsley (4-4, 3.57) on Saturday:


1. Alejandro De Aza, CF

2. Gordon Beckham, 2B

3. Adam Dunn, LF

4. Paul Konerko, 1B

5. Alex Rios, RF

6. A.J. Pierzynski, C

7. Alexei Ramirez, SS

8. Orlando Hudson, 3B

9. Phil Humber, RHP
