White Sox 9, Mariners 5: M’s swept away by Chicago power onslaught

Seattle scored 10 runs the final two games here, but wound up losing both game and getting swept four straight by the White Sox.
The reason?
They were overpowered. Literally.
Four more home runs by the White Sox did them in tonight. Two allowed by Chris Seddon, then the final two by Garrett Olson.
David Pauley lasted just 2 2/3 innings, turning a 2-0 lead into a 4-2 deficit.
Ichiro gets three doubles to ruin the 27-inning scoreless streak by J.J. Putz and and tie a Seattle franchise record.
Still, the M’s could not get situational hitting when they most needed it to get back into this one, and then the home run barrage buried them for good.
The losing continues.
