Mariners 6 | White Sox 7

RRS definitely didn’t have it tonight and unfortunately, the defense didn’t help him much.  There was the excitement of Lopey’s first home run of the season that, oh by the way, was also the first grand slam of his career – off old buddy, old pal J.J.  That made the score 6-5 in the 7th.  The ChiSox would tie it up in the bottom of the inning and tied it would stay … until the bottom of the 9th with 2 out and a pitch that no doubt Mr. Lowe would like to take back – to Andrew Jones (his second of a game that saw 5 homers).

Here’s hoping the bats can pick up where they left off today and Mister Fister can continue his dominant ways to help the M’s avoid back-to-back losses (last time 11th and 12th).

Oh, and here’s to J-Dub getting well soon ….
injured thumb in the 3rd inning and was replaced by Tui – supposedly not broken, but likely day-to-day.
