Third to first

• Chicago and Detroit trotted out two starters -- Bassitt and Kyle Ryan, respectively -- making their Major League debut for the second game of Saturday's doubleheader, for the first time since Sept. 21, 1963. In that game, Detroit's Denny McLain allowed three runs (one earned) on seven hits to pick up the victory over Chicago's Fritz Ackley, who was credited with a no-decision after allowing two earned runs over six innings.

• Adam Eaton is batting .435 (10-for-23) since returning from the disabled list after the first game of Saturday's doubleheader.
