Third to first

• Alex Rios became just the fifth player to homer off Felix Hernandez on a 0-2 count in Saturday's 4-3 White Sox win over Seattle. The last player to do so was Adrian Beltre, who homered on an 0-2 pitch on Sept. 18, 2011. Former White Sox third baseman Josh Fields hit a solo homer off Hernandez on an 0-2 pitch on Aug. 19, 2007.

• The White Sox are prepared to watch Monday night's NCAA title game between Michigan and Louisville together as a team in Washington.

• Julio Cruz and Rudy Law, members of the 1983 AL West champs, threw out the first pitch Sunday. The White Sox wore the throwback '83 jerseys for the first time this season and will do so for every home Sunday.
