Mariners outlast White Sox in a 12-inning slugfest

This was a wildly entertaining game to watch, especially when the Mariners pulled out a 10-8 win over the Chicago White Sox in 12 innings, snapping the home side’s win streak at nine. John Jaso had the go-ahead double in the 12th and Chone Figgins kicked in a huge insurance run with an RBI single off Addison Reed.
Hisashi Iwakuma came on to notch the save. He walked a guy with one out, then had to face Adam Dunn with two out and a runner on, but got him to ground out into the right side shift (photo above).


Tom Wilhelmsen gets a well-deserved win, throwing three scoreless innings of one-hit relief in sudden death situations. Had four strikeouts as well.
For the Mariners, a third game in four tries in which they’ve scored 10 runs or more. When’s the last time we saw a Seattle club do that?
And these aren’t pooch teams they’re doing it off of either. The White Sox were the hottest team in baseball heading into today.
Jesus Montero led the 12th off with a double to right center and then, after a popout caught in shallow left, Jaso stepped up and notched his second hit of the day to score pinch-runner Munenori Kawasaki.
