White Sox 7, Mariners 6 – Robinson’s rally falls short

03.24.14 Box Score

Update: Mariners confirm that Scott Baker has opted out of his minor league contract and will become a free agent. The team offered him a spot at Triple A Tacoma, he declined the paper work has been sent to MLB. 

Quick guess at the rotation: Felix Hernandez, James Paxton, Erasmo Ramirez, Roenis Elias and ?????

After dominating for most the spring, Robinson Cano found himself in a little bit of a mini-slump, going hitless in 10 at-bats. That changed on Monday. After grounding out and reaching on an error, Cano got back to hitting, hammering a sharp RBI single through the right side to cut a White Sox lead that was 5-2 down to 5-3

In the seventh inning with the Mariners trailing 7-2, Cano came through again. Mike Zunino led off with a single off of veteran lefty Donnie Veal. Abraham Almonte and Brad Miller drew walks to load the bases. Cano unloaded them with a double to left-center to cut the lead to 7-6. But the Mariners would get no closer.

Blake Beavan had an up and down start. He worked a 1-2-3 inning, then gave up five runs in the second inning, including a three-run homer to Marcus Semien. Beavan settled back in and worked 1-2-3 innings in the third, fourth and fifth. But with one out int he sixth, he gave up a two-run homer to Paul Konerko that ended his day.
