White Sox Saturday lineup

Off perhaps the most thrilling win of the season last night, a walk-off home run from Jordan Danks, the Chicago White Sox will go for their second consecutive win against the Oakland Athletics.
Francisco Liriano, who has pitched well in his first two starts since being acquired from Minnesota, is still in search of his first win with the White Sox.
Liriano is 1-1 with a 1.92 ERA in two starts against the Athletics this season.
The only change in the lineup for the South Siders is Tyler Flowers behind the plate, as A.J. Pierzynski moves to the DH spot. Adam Dunn moves to first base, filling in for Paul Konerko, who was moved to the 7-day disabled list yesterday with a concussion.
The Athletics, who sit a half-game back in the Wildcard standings, counter with Travis Blackley (4-3, 3.30).
