* The Red Sox open their final road series of the season tonight as they face the White Sox in the first of a four-game set at U.S. Cellular Field. This series marks the first and only trip to the Windy City for the Sox and must sweep the four-game set to win the season series with the Pale Hose. Since 2007, the Sox have won seven of their last 12 in Chicago. The Sox have won or split each of the last seven season series against the White Sox.

Happy birthday to Red Sox hall of famer Johnny Pesky who turns 91 years young today.

On the road, one last time: The Red Sox continue their seven-game roadtrip tonight with the opener of four against the White Sox in Chicago. Following this series, the Sox conclude the season with a three-game series against the Yankees at Fenway. The Sox have won six of their last seven road games, while the team is 34-25 away from Fenway Park since May 22, the second-best mark in the Majors.

For the Record: The Sox are 86-69, good for third in the American League East, fifth in the A.L. and tenth-best in the Majors. Boston has lost five of the last nine and their playoff hopes can end with a loss or a Yankees win tonight. They sit in third place in the division (7.0 games behind the Rays, elimination number is 1) and second place in the Wild Card (6.5 games behind the Yankees, elimination number is 1).

Thanks, Mike: The Sox have designated Saturday’s game as “Thanks, Mike Night” at Fenway Park to honor Mike Lowell as he retires from baseball after a remarkable 13-year career. The four-time All-Star will be honored during on-field ceremonies before the game.

Spreading the Wealth: The Sox have had 52 players appear in a game this year, most in the A.L. and tied for second in the Majors with the Pirates, behind the Marlins (55). Last season, 52 players also appeared in a game. Boston has used 25 pitchers in 2010, tied for most in the A.L. with the Royals.
