Third to first

• Despite Conor Gillaspie hitting into an inning-ending double play with the bases loaded in the ninth inning of Friday's 5-4 loss, Ventura didn't feel the need to talk to Gillaspie about the tough at-bat and great play by the Twins' infield.

"That's part of just playing. That's just playing," White Sox manager Robin Ventura said. "I think you take him up there in most opportunities and he's going to get it done. That's going to happen every once in a while. I'd take my chances with him going to the plate that he's going to knock in the runs."

Gillaspie tripled and scored on Jose Abreu's single in the first inning of Saturday's contest.

• The White Sox Arizona Rookie League squad made its 2014 season debut on Friday with a 10-8 loss to the Mariners. Former White Sox assistant hitting coach Mike Gellinger serves as the team's manager.
