Mariners 4, White Sox 2: Sox lose seventh straight

Mark Parent has seen enough. Maybe he'll light a fire under the team when he is managing on Thursday. - Otto Greule Jr

The White Sox bats exploded for two runs on Monday night, but it still wasn't enough to prevent them from losing their seventh straight.

The White Sox hadn't held a lead in over a week entering Monday's game. They were able to end that streak in the second inning Monday night when Dayan Viciedo hit a bloop double and Jeff Keppinger plated him with a single to give the Sox a 1-0 lead against the Mariners in Seattle.

Unfortunately, the Mariners tied the game up in the bottom of the inning. With one out, Nick Franklin singled to left. He moved to second on a passed ball by Tyler Flowers and after a Michael Saunders strike out, Jesus Sucre brought home Franklin with a single of his own.

The Mariners blew it open in the third when Kyle Saeger recorded a one-out bunt single and scored on a Kendrys Morales double to deep center field. Raul Ibanez put the game out of reach when he followed with a homer into the right field stands to make it 4-1.

Adam Dunn singled home Alex Rios with two outs in the ninth to make it a 4-2 game, but Keppinger flew out to Saunders to send it to Cooperstown.

Danks threw six innings and gave up four runs (three earned) to fall to 0-2 on the season.

  • Gordon Beckham batted ninth and went 0-3 in his long awaited return to the lineup.
  • Bench Coach Mark Parent was ejected for arguing balls and strikes in the seventh inning.
  • The White Sox haven't homered since Adam Dunn took Alex Sanabia of the Marlins deep on Sunday, May 26th.
  • It won't get any easier for the White Sox to crack the magical four run mark tomorrow as Felix Hernandez is on the bump for Seattle.
Record: 24-31 | Box
