Seattle Mariners fall short and lose 3-2 to White Sox in extras

SEATTLE (AP) — Garrett Crochet struck out a career-high 13 in seven dominant innings, Andrew Vaughn homered and drove in the tiebreaker run in the 10th, and the Chicago White Sox beat the Seattle Mariners 3-2 on Thursday night.

Chicago White Sox 3, Seattle Mariners 2 (10 innings): Box score

Chicago avoided a sweep in the four-game series, but needed extra innings after Seattle star Julio Rodríguez tied the score at 2 in the bottom of the ninth with a solo homer off closer Michael Kopech. Rodríguez laid off a pair of high fastballs from Kopech (2-6) and hit a 3-1 pitch to right-center for his sixth home run.

Andrés Muñoz (2-3) pitched the 10th for Seattle, just his second appearance since June 4, when lower back problems surfaced. He gave up an one-out single to Nicky Lopez, which sent automatic runner Korey Lee from second base to third base. Lee scored on Vaughn’s groundout, a helicopter to third base.

Tanner Banks worked a perfect inning for his second save.

Crochet was the story for most of the evening. The 24-year-old left-hander relied almost entirely on his fastball and cutter, allowing two hits and striking out double-digit batters for the third time in his last four starts. During that four-game span, Crochet has allowed five earned runs and struck out 42.

Crochet’s 13 strikeouts were the most by a White Sox pitcher since Lance Lynn also smoked 16 against Seattle on June 18, 2023. His only major mistake came in the fifth when rookie Tyler Locklear golfed a changeup to left field for his first career home run. .

According to MLB Statcast data, it was the only changeup Crochet threw in his 102 pitches.

Seattle starter Emerson Hancock threw a career-high seven innings and allowed six hits, but the White Sox took advantage of two costly errors against two of their most dangerous hitters.

Vaughn hit his eighth homer with one out in the third. Three pitches later, Luis Robert Jr. deep for the second night in a row. Robert had a pinch-hit homer in the ninth inning on Wednesday to tie the game at 1 before Seattle won in extra innings.

Hancock made a flawless start to give the rest of Seattle’s rotation an extra day of rest.
