Seattle, WA (Sports Network) - Raul Ibanez gave Felix Hernandez some support
with a home run and four RBI, and the Seattle Mariners handed the Chicago
White Sox an eighth straight loss, 7-4, in the middle portion of a three-game
series at Safeco Field.
Nick Franklin and Kendrys Morales each had two hits and an RBI to back a solid
start by Hernandez (7-4), who limited the White Sox to six hits and four runs
over 7 1/3 innings.
Hernandez's counterpart was a fellow former Cy Young Award winner, but Jake
Peavy (6-4) wasn't around long due to rib soreness in his right side. Before
exiting, Peavy surrendered six runs for the second consecutive time out and
was knocked around for seven hits in just 2 1/3 frames.
Adam Dunn hit a solo home run for Chicago, which ended a seven-game string of
scoring three runs or less but still came up short.
