The Chicago White Sox (30-23) could not keep their win streak rolling as the Seattle Mariners (24-31) scored their second-most runs of the season and outlasted the Sox 10-8.
The Sox sent SP Gavin Floyd to the mound, but the tall lefty gave up four home runs and five earned runs in just 5.0 IP against the Mariners lineup. The Mariners starter -- SP Hector Noesi -- didn't fare any better, though. The one-time New York Yankees prospect allowed three homers for six earned runs and left partway through the fifth inning.
Chicago appeared to have the game in hand entering the eighth up 7-5, but RP Jesse Crain allowed 3 ER to put the White Sox up 8-7. LF Dayan Viciedo homered to even the game back up in the bottom of the frame, but in the top of the 12th, hits from DH Jesus Montero, C John Jaso and LF Chone Figgins gave Seattle a 10-8 lead, good enough to beat the Sox and stop their win streak at 9.
