Roster Move: Before tonight's game, the White Sox released outfielder Engel Beltre. Matt Tuiasosopo was activated from the Temporary Inactive list to bring the Knights' roster back to 25. 

Notes: Louisville was originally scheduled to send Josh Smith (0-0, 8.31) to the mound tonight, but instead pushed the right-hander's start to tomorrow. ... Chicago White Sox Double-A prospect (and potential mid-season Knights call up) Courtney Hawkins hit a home run off a moving train the other day.
