Notes: The Red Sox held the slumping David Ortiz out of the lineup to rest his surgically repaired left wrist. ... Chicago's Ken Griffey Jr., who missed the previous two games with general soreness, moved into a tie with George Brett for 16th place on the career list with 5,044 total bases when he singled leading off the fifth. ... White Sox slugger Carlos Quentin got hit by Beckett's pitch in the eighth, the fifth straight game he's been plunked. He's been hit an AL-high 19 times this season. ... Chicago RHP Scott Linebrink, on the disabled list since July 26 with right shoulder inflammation, wasn't sure when he'll return after having it re-examined. "It is taking a little bit longer than originally expected," he said.
