Tonight’s Game

White Sox vs. A’s at O.co Coliseum, Oakland, Calif. (9:05 p.m., CT, CSN). Starters: RHP Scott Carroll (1-2, 3.63) for the Sox, LHP Drew Pomeranz (2-1, 1.45) for Oakland.

Plays of the Day

Jose Abreu (No. 14) and Dayan Viciedo (3) homered (click on links below) and Alexei Ramirez and Paul Konerko each drove in a run last night, but a ninth-inning rally fell short as the Sox dropped a close 5-4 decision to the A’s…John Danks had another quality start, allowing three runs, six hits and a pair of walks along with five K’s in six innings of work.

Leaders of the Pack

Abreu leads the major leagues in homers, extra-base hits (26) and total bases (98). He’s second with 38 RBI, a .620 slugging percentage and an 11.29 at bat/home run ratio. Ramirez’s .331 average is tied for second place in the AL batting race.

Sox Notes of Note

Chris Sale, who has been on the disabled list since April 22 with a left flexor strain, will make his first rehab start on Thursday with Class AAA Charlotte at Durham. His next scheduled throw day and location will be determined following Thursday’s start with the Knights…highly touted second base prospect Micah Johnson, who was leading the Southern League in hitting with a .329 average, has been promoted from Class AA Birmingham to Charlotte as has left-handed pitcher Nelvin Fuentes…righty reliever Maikel Cleto, who was designated for assignment on May 10, cleared waivers and has been outrighted to the Knights.

Quote of the Day

Here are Adam Dunn‘s comments after last night’s game, which saw the Sox score three runs in the ninth after being down 5-1:

“If we have one good thing we’ve done all year, it seems like no matter what the score is, we continue to battle. No matter how bad it might look for seven, eight innings, we know we’re capable of putting some runs together late.”

Tomorrow’s Schedule

White Sox vs. A’s at O.co Coliseum (2:35, CT, CSN). Starters: RHP Andre Rienzo (3-0, 4.56) for the Sox, LHP Tommy Milone (1-3, 4.54) for Oakland.
