Quote of the Day
 
Jordyn Wieber, a member of the gold medal-winning US Women’s Gymnastics teams at the 2011 World Championships and the 2012 Summer Olympics, threw out the ceremonial first pitch at last night’s game. She obviously loved the experience. Here’s what she tweeted:
 
@jordyn_wieber: Feeling like a pro with my cool jersey :) #1 #WhiteSox
 
…and take a look at her in full acrobatic mode: 
 
Play(s) of the Day
 
The fine seven-inning performance by Jose Quintana in last night’s loss. He gave up only two runs and six hits with five strikeouts…And Conor Gillaspie’s eighth-inning solo homer, his ninth of the season.
 
Tomorrow’s Schedule
 
White Sox vs. Royals at U.S. Cellular Field (1:10 p.m., CT, CSN). Starters: LHP Hector Santiago (3-6, 3.38) for the Sox, LHP Bruce Chen (4-0, 1.97) for K.C.
 
Did You Know…
 
…that Sale has five 10-plus strikeout games in 2013, tied for the second-most in the American League and third-most in the majors (Matt Harvey of the Mets and Yu Darvish of the Rangers lead their respective leagues with six)?
