Mariners 7-run 6th spells 8-4 win over White Sox


The 6th inning of yesterday’s game between Seattle and Chicago began innocently enough…a walk to Jose Marmolejos. 10-batters and 7-runs later, the Mariners had erased a 4-1 deficit and led 8-4. Seattle went on to beat the White Sox by that score and even its record at 3-and-3. The big hit in the inning came with the bases loaded and Kyle Seager at the plate…

Ian Goldschmidt and Mike Blowers with the call on Root Sports. Seager would finish the game 3-for-4 with a run to go with those 3-RBI’s. Ty France was 1-for-4 with 2-runs.

The comeback helped bail out Seattle starter Justin Dunn, who allowed 3-runs on 1-hit with 8-walks and gave Will Vest his first-career Major League win.

Manager Scott Servais says he didn’t like the way the Mariners got the win, but a win is a win is a win…

Seattle finished its first home stand of the season 3-and-3 and now begins a road trip in Minnesota against the 4-and-2 Twins. Marco Gonzales will get the start today against José Berriós. First pitch at Target Field is 1:10.

Texas and Oakland also post wins

Also in the American League West on Wednesday…
