A day after he was pulled from the game for not hustling, Alex Rios was back in manager Ozzie Guillen's lineup when the White Sox played the Colorado Rockies on Wednesday night.

Rios took his punishment, declined to say much about it and was pleased to be back in center field. He went 0-for-4 with a strikeout.

''I'm not going to comment on anything,'' Rios said before the game. ''It happened last night, and what can you do? [Guillen] had to do what he had to do, and it's all good. Let's move forward.

''I'm not going to comment because I want to keep the distractions away from the game.''

In Rios' second at-bat Tuesday, he fouled out to first baseman Todd Helton, who caught the ball near the line. Rios lightly jogged about halfway up the first-base line. After he flied out to right field his third time up, Guillen pulled him.
