Hernandez Pitches Complete Game In Victory

Philip Humber had another excellent start for the White Sox, but it wasn’t enough as the Sox dropped another winnable game to open their road series against Seattle.

Humber pitched seven innings and gave up just two runs on three hits and three walks. He struck out four. But it still wouldn’t be enough. The White Sox struck first, as singles by Juan Pierre and Alexei Ramirez and a sacrifice fly by Paul Konerko tallied the first run of the game. But the Mariners would answer in the bottom of the sixth on RBI doubles by Milton Bradley and Justin Smoak.

The Sox tied the game in the top of the seventh and managed to keep it close until Matt Thornton came into the game. Thornton gave up three singles, which would be just enough to score Adam Kennedy and win the game for the Mariners. Thornton ended up with a loss on the night, while Philp Humber got a no decision.

The Sox will once again try to rebound on Saturday night at Seattle. First pitch is at 8:10 P.M., CDT.
