Mariners Vs. White Sox: Seattle Starts Start Road Trip In Chicago Against Struggling John Danks

After a successful 7-3 home stand, the Mariners (31-28) head out on the road this week for a three game series against the Chicago White Sox (28-33) and a four game set against the Detroit Tigers (31-27). Despite the Mariners having won six straight series, they are still 2.5 games behind the first place Texas Rangers (34-26) who have won five straight and are currently the hottest team in baseball.

The Mariners send out Michael Pineda (6-2 2.30 ERA) for game one Monday night against the White Sox. Pineda is coming off a solid performance against the Baltimore Orioles last week. He struck out seven and only allowed one earned run in seven innings of work. Opposing batters this season are managing to hit only .196 against the rookie.

Getting the start for the Chicago White Sox is John Danks (0-8 5.25). Danks has struggled mightily this season. In his last start he only lasted four innings, giving up nine earned runs over nine hits. 

First pitch at U.S. Cellular Field is scheduled for 5:10 p.m. PT with coverage on ROOT Sports and 710 ESPN AM.
