Chicago White Sox's Matt Davidson (24) is greeted by Todd Frazier, right, as Seattle Mariners catcher Carlos Ruiz, left, looks on after Frazier scored on a home run hit by Davidson in the seventh inning of a baseball game, Saturday, May 20, 2017, in Seattle. He doubled to left field against lefty Dillon Overton to drive in two runs in the Sox' five-run fourth.
Royals 5, Yankess 1: Danny Duffy tossed seven innings of three-hit ball, Mike Moustakas hit a three-run homer and Kansas City beat NY to avoid a three-game sweep. The Chicago White Sox have now won 12 of their last 17 games when scoring more than three runs.
Brewers 4, Padres 2: Eric Sogard had his second four-hit game in three days and drove in three runs in Milwaukee's win. Miranda allowed one run in five innings in his last start.
White Sox: CF Leury Garcia left the game in the bottom of the fifth inning with a bruised right elbow after getting hit by a pitch in the top half of the inning.
It was largely thanks to Avisail Garcia.
The White Sox right fielder, already off to a surprising start through the first 40 games of the season, belted two homers and doubled twice in his first four at-bats Saturday, driving in a career high six runs in the process and tying a club record with four extra-base hits as the Sox rolled to a 16-1 victory over the Mariners.
With two out in the third, Garcia followed with a solo shot to center field for his fifth career multi-home run game. The last was infielder Luis Sardinas on June 29, 2016 against the Cubs in Chicago...Avisail Garcia's six RBIs are a career high. But the Mariners were able to piece together a late rally that was highly reliant on Dyson's speed and Heredia's hit.
He got that and more from Gaviglio, whom Servais said "gave us a great effort". "That's what everybody is doing right now".
Pelfrey signed with the White Sox as a minor-league free agent April 5.
-This was the first time Quintana has gone at least eight innings while allowing only one hit.
The White Sox pulled within 4-2 on Davidson's two-run homer off reliever Casey Lawrence, who was making his Mariners debut, in the seventh inning.
"That guy has been doing his job, toting us a little bit and I like to see it out there", Dyson said of Heredia. He went four innings at Chicago last August 27, allowing three runs on five hits with three walks and one strikeout.
I liked the White Sox in an upset last night and it didn't happen.
"Overall pretty pleased with the way it went".
It wasn't exactly an ideal performance on one of the best weather nights of an bad spring and a crowd of 33,801 in attendance. Gallardo made his lone All-Star appearance that season when he was 14-7 with a 3.84 ERA for Milwaukee, which had taken him in the second round of the 2004 amateur draft. In five starts at home this season, Gallardo has allowed 21 earned runs in 27 innings pitched. "Just tossing, progressing to long toss and progressing to the bullpens, they wanted to make sure I felt good because there's no reason for me to come back not feeling good and going through the whole thing all over again".
"I thought he threw the ball really well tonight", Servais said. He finished 4-for-5 and became the first White Sox hitter since Jermaine Dye on August 2, 2007 with four extra base hits. He gave up one run on four hits, walking two.
The Mariners lost the pitching duel to White Sox ace Jose Quintana and closer David Robertson, who combined for the one-hitter. After striking out Anderson and getting Cabrera to fly out to center, Jose Abreu reached on another infield single, putting runners at first and second. 2B Robinson Cano (quad) took batting practice and groundballs on Saturday and remains on track to come off the disabled list for the start of Seattle's road trip next week in Washington.
