• Paul Konerko singled to lead off the second in Saturday's 11-9 loss to Arizona, extending his streak of consecutive at-bats with a hit to seven. He lined out to center in the third, but then launched a three-run homer in the fifth. Konerko has four homers and eight RBIs in Cactus League action.
"The thing that is most impressive about him is he doesn't really try to do too much," said White Sox outfielder Trayce Thompson of the captain. "You see these guys that hit mammoth home runs, he has just as much power as them, but he just lets the pitcher supply all the power. That's how he hits 30 bombs every year. For him at his age to do what he's done, it's pretty impressive."
• Konerko, Adam Dunn, Alexei Ramirez and Tyler Flowers will be part of the White Sox lineup at Camelback Ranch against the Reds on Sunday at 3:05 p.m. CT. Gordon Beckham, Jeff Keppinger and Dayan Viciedo are part of the group making the trip to Peoria to face the Mariners at the same time.
• There was no thought of bumping John Danks or Matt Thornton from their Saturday appearances, despite the game-time temperature being 50 degrees.
"We play in cold weather," White Sox manager Robin Ventura said. "So they've got to get used to it."
