stats_logo_400x225* The White Sox have had seven or more hits in 11 straight games, which is tied with the Detroit Tigers for the longest active streak in the majors.

* The Twins lead the majors with 21 home runs so far in August. The last time they led the majors in home runs in any single month was back in May 1986 (49 HR).

* Andre Rienzo is the first person born in Brazil to ever pitch in the majors. He is also the only White Sox pitcher since 1921 to receive a no decision in each of his first three career starts when pitching at least five innings in each start.

* Alexei Ramirez is batting .392 (20/51) with seven runs and nine RBI during his current 11-game hitting streak. This is Ramirez’s longest single-season batting streak since his career-long 15-game one, August 6-21, 2010.

* Joe Mauer tied his career high for hits in a game when he had five against the Indians on Wednesday. Mauer’s five career 5+ hit games are tied with Juan Pierre, Alfonso Soriano and Alex Rodriguez for the second most by an active player (Ichiro Suzuki – 7).
