White Sox | Matt Thornton picks up save

Chicago White Sox RP Matt Thornton got the chance for the save Sunday, April 29, against the Boston Red Sox, and he retired them in order for his first save. However, manager Robin Ventura said that it doesn't necessarily mean RP Hector Santiago is out of the closer's role. "It is nothing against Hector, he still will be there in the ninth, but you're looking at (a) guy with a body of work against (2B Dustin Pedroia, 1B Adrian Gonzalez and DH David Ortiz)," Ventura said. "I felt confident leaving Matt in there."
