Danks brothers in starting lineup for first time together

CHICAGO -- Jordan and John Danks have been in the same starting lineup during Spring Training and have even played in the same game at the big league level. But the younger Danks' echoed his brother John's thoughts Friday that it was a great experience to start together for the first time at the Major League level in Game 1 of Friday's doubleheader.

"I felt like, in a sense, we had already done so," said Jordan of teaming up with John. "But just to see both of our names in the lineup for the first time was pretty cool."

Jordan said that the Danks brothers were going to get the lineup card from Friday's first game. White Sox clubhouse manager Vince Fresso also presented the Danks family with three baseballs, representing each of the two brothers and their father.

"That will be real cool, especially for my dad," Jordan said.
