Mariners Vs. White Sox Final Score: Philip Humber Pitches Perfect Game In 4-0 Chicago Win

The Seattle Mariners hosted the Chicago White Sox on Saturday in a game where the Mariners were hoping to get back in the win column after a lopsided loss to the visitors. Instead, Seattle found themselves shut out in the most historic manner possible, as Chicago starting pitcher Philip Humber threw a perfect game in the 4-0 White Sox victory. It was the 20th perfect game in regular-season MLB history.

The White Sox scored all their first three runs in the second and third innings, on a Paul Konerko solo home run and RBI singles by Konerko and A.J. Pierzynski. They added one last insurance run in the top of the ninth inning, on an RBI single by Alejandro De Aza

Blake Beavan turned in a quality start for the M's, but the star of the day, of course, was Humber.

Humber went the distance, picking up the 18th no-hitter in White Sox history while striking out nine. The deepest he got into a count all game was a 3-0 count to Michael Saunders to lead off the bottom of the ninth inning, but he then struck out Saunders on the next three pitches. Brendan Ryan came in to pinch hit with two outs in the bottom of the ninth and worked the count full. Humber through a pitch away for ball four, but Ryan was called out on a check-swing. Pierzynski retrieved the ball and threw on to first base to complete the out and record the perfect game and White Sox win.

The final out and check-swing in question:

Mariners Vs. White Sox: Philip Humber Has Perfect Game Through 7 Innings

Philip Humber has taken a perfect game into the eighth inning in Seattle, striking out six and throwing 69 pitches so far. Munenori Kawasaki tried to bunt his way aboard in the sixth inning, but Humber was able to scoop it up and a soft toss to Justin Smoak beat Kawasaki by a step or two.

The White Sox offense has done their part, they have seven hits so far. Paul Konerko has a solo home run and an RBI single, and Seattle is leading 3-0. Humber is 0-0 so far this year and had a 1.69 ERA entering Saturday's game. The seventh inning is generally when these things start to fall apart, and Humber made ith through, so he has a decent chance at something special.

Mariners Vs. White Sox, Game 1 Final Score: Adam Dunn's Big Night Leads To 7-3 Seattle Loss

The Seattle Mariners hosted the Chicago White Sox on Friday night in the opening game of a three-game series at Safeco Field. The M's were still smarting from their heartbreaker loss on Thursday night, but were hoping to rebound and get back in the win column. Things did not quite work out that way, as the Mariners lost by a final score of 7-3.

The White Sox got on the board in the top of the first as Adam Dunn doubled in a run and Alex Rios plated another with a sacrifice fly. Things went from bad to worse in the top of the second, as Brent Morel singled in a run and Dunn struck again, this time with a three-run homer to put the White Sox up 6-0.

Seattle starter Hector Noesi was knocked out of the game in that second inning, capping off another disastrous start. He lasted 1.1 innings and was charged with all six runs, on six hits and one walk. His 2012 ERA was raised to 9.49 after the outing.

The Mariners got a run in the bottom of the third on an Ichiro Suzuki RBI double and added another with a solo shot by Jesus Montero in the bottom of the sixth. Suzuki picked up another RBI hit in the bottom of the seventh to cut the Sox lead to 6-3, but that was as close as the M's were able to get.

Dunn wasn't quite finished with the Mariners, however, as he led off the top of the eighth inning with another home run. The Chicago DH ended up going 3-for-4 with five RBI.

The silver lining for the Mariners in the game was their solid bullpen, which gave up only the Dunn solo shot after the second inning.
