Third to first

• Iconic White Sox television play-by-play announcer Ken "Hawk" Harrelson celebrated his 71st birthday on Tuesday. He left early from Tuesday's telecast feeling under the weather.

• The White Sox are 26-26 against the American League Central but have lost nine of their last 10 games in the division.

• White Sox manager Robin Ventura won't push his starting pitchers to pick up an extra out or two at this crucial point of the season, not with a 12-man bullpen giving him the chance to play matchups early and often.

"At the end of the year, everybody's tired," Ventura said. "Where we're at with the guys we have, you have to play the game the way you see it. If they look like they're ready to come out, you take them out."

• The White Sox became the first team to hit 10 doubles in a game during Tuesday's 18-9 loss since Toronto on Aug. 17, 2008, against Boston.
