NOTES: Michael Jordan was inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame on Friday night, 15 years after his failed attempt to become a major league outfielder. Jordan tried out with the White Sox in 1994 as a non-roster invitee to spring training in Sarasota, Fla., following his first retirement from the NBA. He played 127 games with Double-A Birmingham, batting .202 with 51 RBIs, 30 stolen bases and 114 strikeouts. ... Six of Chicago's final nine regular-season games will be against Detroit, whom they still trail by six games in the AL Central with 20 to play overall. ... Chicago 3B Gordon Beckham returned to the lineup after missing four games because of a strained oblique muscle on his right side. He was 0 for 4 and did not hit a ball out of the infield.
