Homers By Quentin And Paulie Lead Sox To Victory

Philip Humber turned in yet another great start as the White Sox took another game from Seattle, 5-1. Humber pitched 7 2/3 innings, allowing just one run. He struck out five and walked three.

He was backed early by explosive offense on the part of the Sox. Both Paul Konerko and Carlos Quentin took Felix Hernandez deep, and Omar Vizquel added a two run triple.

Hernandez had a rough night overall. King Felix managed just 6.2 innings, giving up five runs on eight hits and two walks. He also struck out five. But those five runs would be enough for the Sox victory, as Seattle was simply unable to get any offense going against Philip Humber. Only four Mariners were able to tally hits against Humber on the night, and big bats like Ichiro’s were largely silent.

The White Sox are on quite the roll, and have now won four of their last six. They’ll go for the sweep against Seattle on Wednesday night at the Cell. First pitch will be at 7:10 P.M., CDT.

White Sox Look To Keep Rolling Against King Felix And The Mariners

Winners of three of their last five, the White Sox will look to continue their improved play and nab a win against one of the best pitchers in the American League. Tuesday night will see them host Felix Hernandez and the Seattle Mariners for game two of their series at the Cell.

Pitching for the Sox will be Philip Humber. Humber has continued his surprising season, and he's currently 4-3 with a 3.06 ERA and 0.96 WHIP. He's coming off of a start against Boston in which he gave up four runs on nine hits over 7.2 innings pitched. In his last game against Seattle, he took a no decision, despite giving up just two runs on three hits over 7.0 innings. In that game, Justin Smoak was 1-for-2 against Humber with a double and a walk.

Felix Hernandez will take to the mound for Seattle. Hernandez has continued his phenomenal year and is sitting at 6-4 with a 3.04 ERA and 1.12 WHIP. He's coming off of a start against Tampa in which he gave up just one run on five hits over 7.0 innings. In his last game against the Sox, Hernandez earned the win after pitching a complete game and giving up only two runs. In that game, Juan Pierre was 2-for-3 with a double, and Carlos Quentin was 1-for-4 with a home run.

The weather in Chicago is expected to be sunny and hot, with a game time temperature in the low-90s. First pitch will be at 7:10 P.M., CDT, and the game will be televised on CSN+.
