The good news is that the Seattle Mariners were able to plate four runs on eight hits one day after being the victim's of Philip Humber's perfect game. The bad news is that the Chicago White Sox managed seven runs on 12 hits and picked up the win to complete the sweep of the M's at Safeco Field on Sunday.
The White Sox picked up their first two runs in the top of the third inning, when Alexei Ramirez hit an RBI double and Adam Dunn immediately singled him home.
The Mariners answered right back in the bottom of the third, however. After a quick two outs, an M's rally featured a Jesus Montero RBI single and an Alex Liddi RBI double to tie the game, 2-2.
The M's took a 4-2 lead in the bottom of the fourth inning, with Miguel Olivo scoring on a throwing error and Casper Wells scoring on a Dustin Ackley fielder's choice.
Chicago reclaimed the lead for good in the top of the sixth inning, picking up three runs on a two-RBI Alex Rios triple and a Kosuke Fukudome sacrifice fly. The White Sox tacked on two more runs in the top of the eighth on RBI singles by Rios and Fukudome. John Danks picked up the win to improve his record to 2-2.
Kevin Millwood's record is now 0-1 after going 5.1 innings and being charged with five earned runs. He allowed eight hits and two walks, bringing his ERA to 7.04.
