"It happened to me in Cuba," said Abreu through interpreter and White Sox manager of cultural development Lino Diaz. "You have to react fast, and you have to do it in the best possible way.
"That happened so fast. There was not much I could do. I just threw the glove so we could make the out."
Carroll made the catch and play without a problem, leading to another Abreu highlight reel moment.
"I was kind of [surprised], because I didn't know it got stuck in his glove at first," Carroll said. "When he tossed his glove, I just laughed in my head and I wanted to corral it and made sure I got the glove for the out."
• Carroll became just the third pitcher in White Sox history to allow one earned run or less in each of his first two career appearances (both starts). Kip Wells (1999) and Fred Klages (1966) are the other two pitchers to accomplish such a feat.
"He knows how to pitch," said Ventura of Carroll. "It has been impressive to see him come in here and take a shot at it and grab a hold of it."
• Jeff Keppinger started 3-for-8 with a home run and two RBIs in his first two rehab games for Double-A Birmingham. Felipe Paulino allowed one earned run over two innings and 46 pitches in his first rehab start for Triple-A Charlotte on Saturday.
