CHICAGO -- The White Sox started Jayson Nix at second base on Thursday, with Ozzie Guillen apparently giving Gordon Beckham a rest against a tough right-hander in Colby Lewis. But Guillen was a bit cryptic when asked if it marked just another one-day respite for Beckham, who has gone 95 at-bats without an extra-base hit and entered Thursday hitting .169 in his past 26 games.
"So far," Guillen said. "Nix starts hitting and has a couple hits there, then I'll play Nix. [I'm not saying] I'm going to bench [Beckham]. I'm just saying if someone performs better than him, I have no choice. I need to win some games."
