• Center fielder Adam Eaton has made some highlight-reel plays in which he's collided with the wall the past few days. The Sox have talked about getting Eaton to tone down his aggressive play so he can stay healthy, but Ventura doesn't mind the wall collisions so much as unnecessary aggressiveness on the basepaths.
"[Outfield aggressiveness], I will let him do. He can do that all he wants," Ventura said. "When you are going after an out, that's one thing. Running with no need to run, that would be another thing."
• Following Sunday's game, the Sox conclude the first half with a seven-game trip to Boston (four games) and Cleveland (three games). Chicago entered the finale against the Mariners just 18-26 on the road, compared to 23-21 at home.
• Double-A Birmingham first baseman Rangel Ravelo extended his hitting streak to a Southern League-leading 22-games Saturday night vs. Tennessee. He's hitting .368 with 10 doubles, two homers, 16 RBIs and 15 runs during the streak.
