Third to first

• Dayan Viciedo was scratched from Saturday's starting lineup with soreness in his right shoulder. Jordan Danks took over in left field for Viciedo, who is hitting .254 with 19 homers and 57 RBIs, but has three homers and seven RBIs in his last 14 games.

White Sox bench coach Mark Parent said after the 5-4 victory over Seattle that Viciedo's soreness was nothing serious and he was ready to go if needed on Saturday.

• Friday's 9-8 victory marked the first time in White Sox history they have won a game in the bottom of the ninth after allowing at least six runs in the top of the inning, according to Elias. Over the last 30 years, the Cubs are the only other team to win in such fashion. They beat the Rockies by a 10-9 margin on June 25, 2007, after relievers Scott Eyre and Bob Howry gave up six in the ninth.

• Paul Konerko's game-winning single stood as the club's sixth game-ending hit this season but was the captain's first since June 4, 2008, against the Royals, according to Elias. Konerko hit a walk-off, two-run homer off Jimmy Gobble in the 15th inning of a 6-4 victory. Konerko picked up 398 RBIs between game-ending hits.

• Triple-A Charlotte clinched the International League's South Division title with a 2-1 victory over Pawtucket on Friday night. The Knights reached the playoffs for the first time since 2006, joining Class A Winston-Salem (Carolina League) and Advanced Rookie Great Falls (Pioneer League) as postseason qualifiers from the White Sox system.
