Player Notes
Matt Lindstrom picked up his second save despite giving up a hit and a walk in the ninth Monday against the Tigers.

Advice: The Tigers ran out of lefties to use against Lindstrom after he allowed two to reach with one out, and he was able to get Rajai Davis to ground out and Ian Kinsler to fly out to end it, leaving Miguel Cabrera on deck. We don't expect Lindstrom to hold on to the White Sox's closer gig for a whole lot longer, but since he got the job done tonight, he's safe for now.

Matt Lindstrom was charged with a remarkably cheap blown save after inheriting Maikel Cleto's mess in the ninth inning Wednesday against the Red Sox.

Advice: Cleto, who got the last out in the eighth, was going to get a chance to go for the save in the ninth, but he was pulled from a 3-2 game after walking the first two batters of the inning. Lindstrom came in and retired David Ortiz on a flyball before giving up a soft infield single and a game-tying sac fly. While he did no wrong, it was his third blown save of the young season. Lindstrom preserved the tie from there and pitched a scoreless 10th, so it was a good night for him and a setback for Cleto, who appeared set to get a chance to supplant Lindstrom in the closer's role.

White Sox manager Robin Ventura said Tuesday that Matt Lindstrom remains the team's closer for the time being.

Advice: "He's in there right now," said Ventura. "It's always been that way, where you can make a change at any time. It's tough, the job is tough. As of right now, he'd probably be going out there today." Lindstrom blew his second save of the season Sunday and holds a 5.00 ERA and 2.00 WHIP through his first five appearances. With Ronald Belisario also struggling and Nate Jones (back) on the DL, Daniel Webb or Maikel Cleto might get a shot in the ninth if Ventura eventually decides to make a move.

Matt Lindstrom blew his second save of the season but took the win Sunday, allowing two unearned runs against the White Sox.

Advice: Lindstrom wasn't officially charged with an earned run but wasn't particularly strong either, giving up two straight singles following a Jose Abreu error and later letting in another run on a wild pitch. Alexei Ramirez saved his skin with a two-run homer in the bottom of the inning, but the fact remains -- Lindstrom's hold on the closer position is tenuous at best at this point.
