Worth noting

• This is the first time the White Sox have played in Baltimore this season and it's going to be the only series. The Orioles took three of four from the White Sox back in April.

• Power hitting is a big reason that the White Sox have a 15-8 record so far in August. Chicago is first in the Major Leagues with 43 homers this month.

• Alex Rios has 30 doubles, 20 homers and 20 steals this season, the only player in the Major Leagues to reach all of those plateaus so far in 2012.

• Manager Robin Ventura hasn't heard from the Commissioner's Office yet about his ejection Saturday. But the skipper doesn't appear worried about a possible suspension.

"I'm not lying up at night thinking about it," Ventura said. "If it happens, it happens."
