White Sox use big 10th inning for 6-3 win over Mariners
SEATTLE — The Chicago White Sox scored two runs in the ninth inning to tie the game and then took advantage of the Seattle bullpen’s wildness for a three-run 10th in a 6-3 victory over the Mariners on Saturday night.
After tying the game against Carson Smith on Alexei Ramirez’s RBI single and pinch-hitter Adam LaRoche’s groundout, Tyler Saladino walked to open the 10th against Danny Farquhar (0-4), who failed to retire any of the four batters he faced.
Jose Abreu followed with a double off the wall in right-center. Melky Cabrera was walked intentionally to load the bases and Garcia walked to force in a run that made it 4-3.
Edgar Olmos relieved and after an out, Cabrera scored on a passed ball by Mike Zunino to make it 5-3. Ramirez reached on a fielding error by second baseman Robinson Cano to reload the bases and Garcia then scored on Carlos Sanchez’s fielder’s choice.
Nate Jones (1-0) pitched the ninth and David Robertson worked the 10th for his 25th save.
