Third to first

• White Sox shortstop Alexei Ramirez was scratched from Sunday's starting lineup because he arrived late to U.S. Cellular Field. He was replaced by Ray Olmedo. Ramirez will return to the starting lineup Monday against Detroit.

• Kevin Youkilis is expected back Monday, after joining his wife for the birth of their son.

• Chris Sale (age 23) earned his 16th win Saturday and Addison Reed (age 23) converted his 26th save, the fifth time Reed has saved a win for Sale this season.
