Fresh legs at root of Pierzynski's triples spike

CHICAGO -- A.J. Pierzynski's fourth triple of the season, coming during Tuesday night's 7-3 victory over the Yankees, surpassed his total of three from his previous seven seasons combined with the White Sox.

There's no special reason for Pierzynski's speed increase on the bases, aside from feeling good and incorporating a little more yoga into his offseason workout regimen.

"It's like I've said all year -- I feel great physically," Pierzynski said. "My legs feel as good as they ever have, and I just feel like I'm moving better. I did some agility stuff with [White Sox direction of conditioning Allen Thomas] and in the offseason with my guy, but nothing major. Nothing has really changed a whole lot."
