After 10th-Inning Heroics, Mariners Seek Sweep vs. Woeful White Sox

Pinch-hitting may be a dying art, but Seattle’s Mitch Haniger and Chicago White Sox’s Luis Robert Jr. demonstrated on Wednesday night that it isn’t entirely gone. The Mariners prevailed 2-1 thanks to Robert’s leadoff homer in the ninth inning and Haniger’s game-winning run in the tenth.

Mariners’ Winning Streak

The Mariners, who are currently leading the American League West and have won four consecutive games, are hoping to complete a sweep of the four-game series on Thursday night in Seattle. The White Sox, with the lowest record in the majors, have suffered losses in four consecutive games, as well as 18 out of their last 20 games, and have a road record of 5-29 this season. To individuals keen on the most recent baseball forecasts, this game provides fascinating perspectives.

Haniger’s Clutch Performance

Haniger stepped to the plate with one out and runners at first and second. After falling behind 0-2, he fouled off four two-strike pitches and got the count even at 2-2. Haniger blooped the ninth pitch of the at-bat into right field, scoring automatic runner Luke Raley, who had homered earlier, from second base.

“Pinch-hitting is not easy and the stats show that,” said Haniger, who is 4-for-16 in his career in that situation. “You just go up there and compete. It’s not an easy thing to do. You just have to stay within yourself.” Mariners manager Scott Servais praised Haniger’s determination, saying, “It wasn’t smoked by any chance, but you got to get it in play.”

Robert’s Timely Homer

Robert made the most of his pinch-hitting opportunity by lining the first pitch of the ninth inning from Mariners reliever Mike Baumann over the left field wall, tying the score at 1-1. “I knew the game was tight and I knew there was a chance I could pinch-hit,” said Robert, who is now 1-for-3 in the role. “But I’m not really used to that situation. I just went there and tried to make contact. I was fortunate enough I was able to do so.”

Servais acknowledged Robert’s skill, saying, “He’s a really good player and we threw it in his wheelhouse. I’m glad it didn’t cost us the game.”

Pitching Performances

The clutch at-bats overshadowed stellar pitching performances by right-handers Jonathan Cannon of Chicago and Bryce Miller of Seattle. Miller pitched seven shutout innings, allowing just two hits, walking two, and striking out eight. Rookie Cannon, in search of his first major league victory, nearly matched Miller. Cannon allowed one run on four hits over seven innings, with one walk and seven strikeouts.

For those following baseball predictions, the strong performances by these pitchers add an extra layer of excitement to the matchup.

Thursday’s Pitching Matchup: Garrett Crochet vs. Luis Castillo

The White Sox will send left-hander Garrett Crochet (6-5, 3.33 ERA) to the mound against Mariners ace Luis Castillo (5-7, 3.35 ERA). Crochet broke the White Sox’s franchise-record 14-game losing streak with a 7-2 win over Boston on Friday, allowing two runs (one earned) on three hits over six innings, with two walks and 10 strikeouts. He is 0-0 with a 6.75 ERA in two career relief appearances against the Mariners.

Having a 1-0 record with a 2.33 ERA in three previous starts against the White Sox, Castillo struggled in his recent game in Kansas City. In a game on Saturday, he gave up five runs on six hits in five innings, ending his streak of 10 consecutive starts allowing two or fewer earned runs in an 8-4 loss.


The Mariners are trusting to total their arrangement against the frail White Sox and are tallying on beat player Luis Castillo to put in a solid execution. With Mitch Haniger’s game-winning hit and the Mariners’ later resurgence, Seattle looks balanced to proceed their winning streak and encourage set their position on the AL West. In the mean time, the White Sox are trusting Garrett Sew puts in a solid execution to offer assistance the group drag out of its continuous emergency.
