Third to first


• The White Sox had players come in later both Friday and Sunday to give them a little break in this extended Spring Training.

"You have to have some days to relax it a little bit and let them come in later," Ventura said. "You give them that and we have an off-day coming up [Tuesday] and one more after that [March 18]. We're trying to keep the reins a little loose right now and towards the end it'll all ratchet up for everybody."

• Brian Omogrosso has thrown 7 2/3 scoreless innings in his six Cactus League outings.

• White Sox pitchers combined to strike out 21 over their two games Sunday. Fourteen of those came against the Reds in Glendale.
