CHICAGO -- Paul Konerko is tied with Frank Thomas for the third-most hits in White Sox history.

A sixth-inning double into the left-field corner not only stood as Konerko’s first hit of 2013, but also the 2,136th of his in a White Sox uniform, which ties Thomas.

Konerko is in his 15th season with the club.

“Anytime you get mentioned with Frank, hitting-wise, it’s nice,” Konerko said. “He’s definitely the best hitter this organization’s ever seen and probably will ever see. So to be mentioned up there with him and have a number that’s in the same ballpark in any regard is kind of cool.”

Luke Appling is the all-time White Sox leader with 2,749 hits and Nellie Fox had 2,470.
