• Jordan Danks shared a poignant reaction from his brother and teammate, John, over Jordan's walk-off shot Friday.

"He was pumped," Jordan said. "He didn't tell me this, obviously, but mom said he said, 'Man, I got a little tear in my eye.'

"That's really cool. I'd feel the same way. I can remember back when he pitched that 'blackout' game [in 2008] and watching that game, and the celebration afterwards. I remember the way I felt and I'm sure that's how he felt."

Danks became the second player in White Sox history whose first career homer was a game-ender, according to Elias. Dave Gallagher also did the job in 1988.

• Baltimore has set a start time at 11:35 p.m. CT for an Aug. 30 contest at Camden Yards with the White Sox. There was previously no start time for the series finale.

• According to Elias, Friday's 4-3 victory was the fifth in White Sox history in which they scored four or more runs and all came via solo homers. The last time it happened was July 7, 2001, in a 4-1 victory over the Pirates.

• The White Sox are 16-9 against the American League West.

• A.J. Pierzynski extended his hitting streak to 12 games with two hits during Saturday's 9-7 loss to the A's.

• Saturday's loss dropped the White Sox to 3-43 in games when they trail in the eighth inning.
