Third to first

• Dayan Viciedo's last three homers have either tied the game or given the White Sox the lead. His three-run blast in the ninth off of the Yankees' David Robertson on Thursday gave the White Sox a 4-3 victory.

• The White Sox snapped their six-game losing streak against the Yankees and improved to 4-7 at the current Yankee Stadium.

• One-time White Sox center fielder Aaron Rowand, who was part of the 2005 World Series champion squad, will serve as a guest radio analyst for the final two games of this four-game set at Yankee Stadium. Rowand replaces Darrin Jackson on the WSCR 670-AM flagship broadcast, with Jackson unavailable due to family matters.

• John Danks played catch prior to Thursday's series opener, the third time he has played catch since Sunday. But Danks reported his shoulder felt about the same.

• Seven players on the Yankees once played for the White Sox. They are Boone Logan, Andruw Jones, Jayson Nix, Dewayne Wise, Freddy Garcia, Chris Stewart and Nick Swisher.

• Include White Sox manager Robin Ventura as a fan already of the Kevin Youkilis trade. "Kenny [Williams] went out and got the right guy," said Ventura.
