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.
