NOTES: The game marked the first time in major league history in which a team started all three outfielders with the last name, according to the Elias Sports Bureau Willy Garcia was recalled from Triple-A Charlotte before the game and made his major-league debut in left field, joining Leury Garcia in center field and Avisail Garcia in right field for the White Sox.
Friday's White Sox lineup behind starting pitcher Dylan Covey is: Tim Anderson (SS), Tyler Saladino (2B), Jose Abreu (1B), Todd Frazier (DH), Avisail Garcia (RF), Matt Davidson (3B), Willy Garcia (LF), Kevan Smith (C), Leury Garcia (CF). Willy Garcia was called up with OF Melky Cabrera going on the paternity leave list. The White Sox claimed him in the Rule 5 draft and stuck him at the back of the rotation instead of somewhere in the bullpen.
The White Sox became the first team to start three players with the same last name in the outfield.
"I know there's a little buzz about that", Renteria said.
The BlackBerry's (BBRY) "Market Perform" Rating Reiterated at William Blair

The start of the game was held up 36 minutes by rain.
This could be a low-scoring series, as the White Sox are second in the majors in team ERA (2.72) and third in opponent average (.202) while the Twins rank fourth (2.77) and second (.196), respectively.
While the crowd waited for the game to begin, the Twins showed Game 2 of the NHL Western Conference quarterfinals series between the Minnesota Wild and St. Louis Blues on the big screen. He is hitting.081 with a league-leading 20 strikeouts.
This weekend they'll be returning to Target Field to take on the White Sox, who are 4-4 and in third place in the central, which is a surprise to me because the White Sox are supposed to be really bad this year, not a.500 ball club. He hit a line drive in the second inning off Covey that appeared headed down the left-field line for extra bases. Buxton struck out swinging after that and went 0 for 3.
