Today’s News

Tonight’s Game

White Sox vs. A’s at U.S. Cellular Field (7:10 p.m., CT, WCIU). Starters: RHP Chris Bassitt (0-1, 7.36) for the Sox, RHP Jeff Samardzija (4-5, 3.70) for Oakland.

Quote of the Day

Bassitt (pictured above) on his transition from the minor leagues to the majors:

“It’s more coming here and realizing what you need to work on. There are a lot of things I got away with in Double-A just because I overmatched a lot of people.”

Plays of the Day

Dayan Viciedo belted his 20th homer of the season, a solo shot off of Jon Lester, in last night’s loss to the A’s (click on link below). This is the second time Tank has hit 20-plus homers in his career (25 in 2012)…Avi Garcia collected a pair of singles and has now recorded three multi-hit efforts over his last seven games. He’s hitting .321 during that span.
