Third to first

• Ventura is not set yet in regard to his rotation to start the second half, aside from Jose Quintana not getting the call Friday and getting pushed back for an extended rest. The rotation will depend on how much Chris Sale throws in Tuesday's All-Star Game and Jake Peavy's effort during his Sunday rehab start for Double-A Birmingham.

"He could be back in the mix," said Ventura of Peavy. "But I'm not going to worry about that today."

* Ventura remains unsure of his AL coaching role for Tuesday's All-Star Game, adding that coaching third remains a possibility.

"It's not like I'm afraid to do it," Ventura said. "But we'll see when I get there and see what happens."

* Dunn gave props to Danks, who started Game 1 on Saturday against the Phillies, for making it into the seventh amidst the intense heat and humidity.

"I don't know how Johnny got through the first one," Dunn said. "I'm sure I've played in warmer, but I mean that was as bad as it gets."

• The White Sox finished 3-for-26 with runners in scoring position over Saturday's doubleheader split.
