Third to first

• Dewayne Wise became the first White Sox position player to pitch since Dave Martinez on Aug 5, 1995, at Cleveland. According to Elias, Wise is the first position player to pitch for and against the same team in a season since infielder Josh Wilson in 2009 (Arizona). The last time Wise pitched in a game before 2012 was during his sophomore year of high school.

• The White Sox division lead has not been greater than three games during their current 41-day stint atop the American League Central.

• Despite their single-game franchise-record 10 doubles in Tuesday's loss, the White Sox still rank 29th in the Majors in that category with 197. They sit second in homers at 175.

• The White Sox have a 23-6 record over their last 29 games at U.S. Cellular Field and have won nine of their last 10 home series. They are 27-26 against the AL Central, although just 2-9 in their last 11.

• Right-hander Addison Reed has a 5.66 ERA in non-save situations this season and a 3.25 ERA in save situations.

• Alex Rios is hitting .421 with six doubles, eight homers, 21 RBIs and 20 runs scored in 15 games against the Twins this season.
