Since the White Sox still commemorate Dewayne Wise's catch that preserved Mark Buehrle's 2009 perfect game, perhaps they can put a mark around second base to honor Alex Rios' slide Monday that moved them closer to an improbable American League Central title. Rios' slide broke up a potential inning-ending double play that resulted in a throwing error by second baseman Omar Infante in the fifth inning. The tying and go-ahead runs scored on the play, propelling the Sox to a 5-4 victory over the rival Tigers and extending their lead to three games with 16 games left.
