This Afternoon’s Game
White Sox vs. Tigers at Comerica Park (12:05
p.m, CT, CSN) in the finale of the three-game series. Starters: RHP Andre Rienzo (0-0, 0.00) for the Sox, RHP Rick Porcello (8-6, 4.49) for Detroit. Despite having made a successful big-league debut last Tuesday in Cleveland, allowing no earned runs and five hits with six strikeouts in seven innings, Rienzo didn’t factor into the decision. He’ll be shooting for his first win today.
Sox Starting Lineup: De Aza, CF; Ramirez, SS; Rios, RF; Dunn, 1B; Konerko, DH; Gillaspie, 3B; Viciedo, LF; Beckham, 2B; Flowers, C.

John Danks pitched a solid seven innings in last night’s 3-0 loss…and Conor Gillaspie robbed Jhonny Peralta on this outstanding play in the sixth inning.
Quote of the Day
Sox hitting coach Jeff Manto, in an interview with Scott Merkin on whitesox.com
“Our coaching staff can’t wait to get to the ballpark so we can teach. This is part of the gig, what we signed up for, but unfortunately we are in the position we are. But every coach in our room has been through this as a player.”
White Sox vs. Yankees at U.S. Cellular Field (7:10 p.m., CT, CSN) in the first of a three-game series. Starters: LHP Jose Quintana (5-3, 3.62) for the Sox, LHP Andy Pettitte (7-8, 4.28) for New York.

…that Carl Everett, who hit 23 homers with 87 RBI for the 2005 World Champions, visited the Sox clubhouse before last night’s game?
