The Cubs got a scare in the seventh when reliever Casey Coleman was hit near his right hand by the barrel of a broken bat as Escobar grounded to second to end the inning.
Manager Dale Sveum and a trainer immediately came out to the mound. Coleman walked off on his own power, but Manuel Corpas came out to start the eighth.
NOTES: The White Sox held Orlando Hudson out of the lineup and went with Escobar at third base, instead. "Just a mental break," manager Robin Ventura said. Hudson, who is new to the position, committed a throwing error that helped set up David DeJesus' two-run single on Tuesday and was in a 4-for-26 slide at the plate. ... Sveum had no issue with Peavy saying after Tuesday's game that the White Sox have "got to show up and take advantage of these opportunities" against weak teams. ""The record dictates those kind of things," Sveum said. "When you've won 20 games coming into a series and the other team's won 35, that's the way it is. That's the way you look at schedules. That's just what we all do. That's just the nature of the game."
