Mariners at Chicago White Sox: July 26, 2010 game thread

mari0726 049.JPG
Felix Hernandez is not having great luck with these White Sox as far as notching wins goes. He’ll have a tough time tonight, trailing 4-1, after Chicago scored two in the sixth and nearly had more.
Paul Konerko led off with a home run to left field. An ensuing walk to Carlos Quentin was then followed by a Mark Kotsay drive to right. Ichiro made a leaping catch at the wall to rob Kotsay of a two-run homer.
Quentin then got caught stealing but back-to-back ground-rule doubles by A.J. Pierzynski and Alexei Ramirez brought another run home.


5:52 p.m.: Felix Hernandez just got charged with two earned runs in the bottom of the third that put Chicago ahead 2-1. The rally began with Jose Lopez muffing up a grounder on his backhand. The official scorer gave a hit to Alexei Ramirez on the play. I thought it was real borderline, but I’ve seen Ichiro given hits on plays like that, so I can’t really argue too much.
But because of the call, both runs are earned instead of unearned.
Ramirez stole second with two out, then scored on a single to center by Juan Pierre. The throw got away from Rob Johnson, allowing Pierre to take second on the play. A single to right by Omar Vizquel brought the speedy Pierre home for the White Sox lead.
Hernandez then gave up his third straight hit, a single to Alex Rios.
But with two on and the dangerous Paul Konerko up, a hard line drive was snared by Lopez going to his left. Lopez goes to his left a lot better than he does to his right.
5:39 p.m.: Seattle grabbed a 1-0 lead in the third inning as Michael Saunders doubled and then scored on a one-out single by Jack Wilson.
The M’s didn’t exactly put on a bunting clinic that frame as Rob Johnson popped out to first base and Chone Figgins popped out to the catcher trying to bunt for a hit.
Casey Kotchman made a great stab of a screaming line drive by Mark Kotsay in the bottom of the second, then touched his bag to double-off the runner.
5:16 p.m.: Sorry for the late start to the game thread. We’re once again dealing with an awful internet connection at a place called U.S. Cellular Field. Hopefully, U.S. Cellular doesn’t drop calls the way this ballpark drops internet hookups.
Anyhow, you didn’t miss much. The M’s went 1-2-3 in the first inning versus John Danks. It was over before I could finish telling the IT technician why this ballpark’s internet blows worse than Jose Lopez with the bases loaded and one out.
