White Sox Vs. Mariners: Chicago, Seattle Added To Strange History

For most baseball fans, this weekend's series between the Chicago White Sox and Seattle Mariners was far from an important story. But, the two teams added to a history that has featured more than a handful of bizarre games over the course of the last few years.

As pointed out by Jim Margalus of South Side Sox, Chicago has gone a staggering 24-4 against the Mariners since the beginning of the 2010 season. Those 28 games have included games with massive blown leads, a starting pitcher giving up 11 earned runs, two walk-off homers in one day and a perfect game.

This weekend saw Friday night's wild comebacks and controversial ending, ejections on Saturday and Gavin Floyd leaving Sunday's game before weather shortened it to seven innings.

Just another weird weekend in the world's weirdest sport.
