White Sox' Beckham likely out next 2 games

WASHINGTON -- White Sox second baseman Gordon Beckham left Tuesday night's game against the Washington Nationals during the third inning with nerve irritation in his left wrist.

He will likely miss at least two games, he said after the Sox' 8-7 loss.

"It's going to take a couple days,'' Beckham said. "It hurts now just standing here.''

Manager Robin Ventura said Jeff Keppinger would likely play second with Conor Gillaspie playing third on Wednesday night when the Sox play the Nationals in the second game of a three-game series.

"On the 2-1 pitch is when I felt it; I knew something was wrong,'' Beckham said.

Beckham grimaced and bent over slightly after swinging and missing at a third strike when he batted against Gio Gonzalez in the second. Trainer Herm Schneider checked him, and Beckham played the second inning in the field but was replaced by Angel Sanchez in the third.
