Third to first

Jose Quintana will start Wednesday afternoon's game against the Giants, with the White Sox having the chance to bring him back on regular rest because of Monday's scheduled off-day. Scott Carroll, who has dealt with blister problems of late, will be skipped Wednesday and return to the rotation during the next homestand.

• Adam Dunn broke an 0-for-19 skid with two singles in his first two at-bats during Sunday's loss.

• Ventura had high praise for closer Jake Petricka, who picked up his eighth save Saturday night.

"I don't think anybody has grown as much bullpen-wise as Jake has," Ventura said of the right-hander's in-season development.

• Tyler Danish, who threw six no-hit innings for Class A Winston-Salem on Saturday night, has a 4-1 record with a 0.81 ERA and 40 strikeouts in 44 2/3 innings over his last eight starts.

• The White Sox have lost 12 games this season after holding a lead of two or more runs in the sixth inning or later, including three when they led by four-plus runs in the eighth.
