Quote of the Day

LaRoche on Friday night’s game-tying homer that set the stage for the Sox’ dramatic extra-inning win:

“Down to our final out there and it allowed us to keep playing and get a win. I can’t say I ever had a goal on home runs or a mark I wanted to hit. Just looking back, it’s neat, the ones you do remember and this will definitely be one of them. I won’t forget this one. Pretty cool.”

Roster Move

Before today’s game, the White Sox placed lefty reliever Dan Jennings on the 15-day disabled list and have purchased the contract of right-hander Junior Guerra, who posted a 2.72 ERA at Class AAA Charlotte.
