Konerko makes history, belts home run No. 400

Paul Konerko has said all along he's not concerned with his home run total -- at least, not while he's playing. When his career ends, that's when he'll look back on his personal accomplishments.

But his 400th career home run had an immediate impact on his team's chance of winning. With the Sox down one in the top of the ninth Wednesday in Oakland, Konerko slammed home run No. 400 on the first pitch he saw from A's closer Grant Balfour, tying the game up at two and pulling Chris Sale off the hook for a loss.

So Konerko will get to enjoy his milestone blast a little more -- but for a completely different reason.

White Sox mourn passing of former pitcher Daniel Webb

Former White Sox pitcher Daniel Webb died at the age of 28 in an ATV accident on Saturday night, according to Humphreys County Sheriff Chris Davis.

Davis called it a “tragic accident, and we should rally around the family.”

Webb, a Paducah, Ky. native, was with the White Sox from 2013-16 and went 7-5 with a 4.50 ERA.

The White Sox released this statement:

Daniel left many friends within the Chicago White Sox organization, and we are all shocked and stunned by the news of last night's terrible accident. He was a terrific young man with a full life ahead of him. All thoughts and prayers go to his family and friends as they deal with today's tragic news.
