Drew Thorpe Set to Debut for Struggling White Sox in Seattle: Mariners’ Dramatic Win Sets the Stage

The Chicago White Sox are gearing up for the debut of top prospect Drew Thorpe against the Seattle Mariners, following a thrilling game that saw the Mariners secure an 8-4 victory with a walk-off grand slam.

Mariners’ Dramatic Victory

Servais’ Ejection Sparks Rally

When Seattle’s Cal Raleigh struck out on a called third strike with the bases loaded in the eighth inning, he turned his frustration towards plate umpire Chris Guccione. Mariners manager Scott Servais quickly intervened and was ejected, setting the stage for an extraordinary ninth inning.

Raleigh’s Redemption: Walk-off Grand Slam

In a dramatic twist, Raleigh got another chance with the bases loaded in the ninth inning and hit a walk-off grand slam, his team-leading 12th homer of the season, sealing an 8-4 victory for the Mariners.

Key Contributions from Mariners Players

Dominic Canzone homered, igniting a four-run rally in the eighth inning after the Mariners were blanked for seven innings by Erick Fedde. Mitch Haniger’s two-run single and Luke Raley’s bunt single tied the game, leading to Raleigh’s game-winning moment.

Quotes from the Game

“I got tossed because I can’t hit slams and (Raleigh) can,” Servais joked post-game, highlighting his support for Raleigh and the team’s resilience.

White Sox’s Continued Struggles

Road Woes Persist

The White Sox fell to 5-27 on the road, continuing a seven-game losing streak away from home. Despite home runs from Luis Robert Jr. and Corey Julks, the team couldn’t secure a win.

Manager’s Perspective

“We know how the game works. You play 27 outs and they have to get ’em all. … We never gave up,” Luke Raley said, emphasizing the Mariners’ perseverance.

Drew Thorpe’s Major League Debut

Impressive Minor League Performance

The White Sox are set to call up Drew Thorpe, one of their top prospects, for his major league debut. Thorpe, acquired from San Diego in a trade for Dylan Cease, boasts a 7-1 record with a 1.35 ERA at Double-A Birmingham.

Manager’s Insights

“I’ve seen his last couple outings… He’s got a plus-plus-plus changeup. He knows how to pitch, he’s calm and has a really good demeanor,” said White Sox manager Pedro Grifol. Thorpe’s promotion marks the third time this season the White Sox have called up a player directly from Double-A.

Familiar Matchup

Thorpe will face Mariners right-hander Bryan Woo, a former college teammate from Cal Poly. “Drew’s been a good friend of mine,” Woo said, adding a personal dimension to the matchup.

Anticipation and Expectations

“Calling guys up from Double-A, as opposed to Triple-A, is not that big of a deal,” Grifol explained. “(Thorpe) checks those boxes.”


The Mariners’ dramatic victory and the upcoming debut of Drew Thorpe for the White Sox add layers of excitement to the series in Seattle. As both teams prepare for the next game, the spotlight is on Thorpe’s potential to shine at the major league level.
