Dayan Viciedo's 11-game hitting streak, the longest of his career, ended on Tuesday.
Gavin Floyd still has a place in the White Sox starting rotation following Monday's abbreviated outing, which lasted 2 1/3 innings. But for a team in a fight for the postseason, starts like Monday's can't really happen again.
"He knows that," Ventura said of Floyd.
The White Sox hit four homers on Monday, marking the fifth time this season they've gone deep four or more times at home. They did not post a four-homer game at U.S. Cellular Field in 2011.
The White Sox have been in first place for 82 days this season.
