Series Preview Quote

Brad Peacock has pitched well enough to keep the Astros in ballgames in the month of May, giving up 11 runs over 18.2 innings. His one major downfall has been the long ball, he has given five over his last three starts. This will be the first time any active White Sox faces Peacock.

John Danks, Austin, TX native, coming to today's game with two straight quality starts. He picked up loss in his more recent outing in Oakland on May 12 - giving up three runs over six innings. Like Peacock, Danks has had a large number of home runs over his last few starts - four in 17 innings.

Jason Castro (1-3) and Chris Castro (1-3) each have a home run in their careers against Danks.
