White Sox Vs. Blue Jays: Ventura Switches Up Lineup In Paul Konerko's Absence

Monday night, the only thing working for the White Sox offense was Adam Dunn's bat, as the Big Donkey hit two home runs in an 11-inning loss to the Blue Jays. Tonight in the second game of this Toronto series, still working without Paul Konerko, Chicago manager Robin Ventura has decided to put his speedsters in front of his power, moving Dewayne Wise and Alex Rios into his two and three holes.

Chicago sends left-hander Jose Quintana (4-2, 2.78) to the mound to face right-hander Henderson Alvarez (7-9, 4.58).
