CHICAGO -- The Chicago White Sox sold more than 3,200 tickets Monday. Not bad for a team that lost 10 straight coming in, and has spent most of the season in last place.

Of course, the return of Alex Rodriguez helped.

The pro-booing A-Rod crowd was announced at 27,948. The White Sox came into the game averaging 23,121 tickets sold per game, which is the seventh-worst average in baseball.

A White Sox official said the team usually sells a "couple hundred" tickets on game days.
