The Chicago White Sox lead the Seattle Mariners more than halfway through Sunday's game, taking a bit of time to answer Seattle after both teams scored two runs in the third. Seattle went on to score another two in the bottom of the fourth, and Chicago was unable to reply until the sixth.
Chicago's second saw Alexei Ramirez hit an RBI double and advance to third on the throw, scoring on an Adam Dunn single. Seattle immediately evened things up, with Jesus Montero and Alex Liddi picking up an RBI each. Seattle picked up another pair of runs in the fourth on a throwing error by pitcher John Danks and Casper Wells scoring when Dustin Ackley grounded into a fielder's choice.
Adam Dunn opened the sixth inning with a walk, advancing to third on a single by Paul Konerko. AJ Pierzynski grounded into a fielder's choice that left Dunn out at home, but Alex Rios stepped up and scored Konerko and Pierzynski. Kosuke Fukudome was next with a sacrifice fly, scoring Rios. Things came to an end with Brent Morel, who flied out to center to finish the inning.
Heading into the bottom of the sixth the White Sox are up by one, and John Danks is still on the hill. He's thrown 79 pitches so far, striking out six and walking three.
