The Chicago White Sox played three games against the Seattle Mariners on the west coast and they had their fate sealed by two heartbreakers.

The Chicago White Sox had a very fun win in their game on Friday night against the Seattle Mariners. That is pretty much where the fun ended for them over the weekend as Seattle won two straight games in walk-off fashion. It was a heartbreaking series for the White Sox who are showing major signs of improvement but sometimes have a hard time finishing things off.

On Saturday, it was a pitchers duel that the Mariners won in ten innings by a final score of 2-1. The Sox tied the game in the seventh inning to finally get on the board, but Omar Narvaez hit a walk-off home run in the tenth. It was a good game for the pitching staffs of both teams as three runs total were scored in ten innings of baseball.

Sunday was the exact opposite for both teams. The Mariners won the game in the bottom of the ninth inning by a final score of 11-10. Neither team had the type of pitching needed to win the game but Seattle was able to get the last run of the game. Jose Ruiz was given the loss for walking in Tom Murphy for the walk-off in the bottom of the ninth. It was a game that the Mariners scored six straight runs to complete a comeback.

Each team had significant leads in the Sunday game and neither was able to hold it. The Mariners led 5-0 and the Sox had a 10-5 lead before Seattle won it 11-10. These are the games that the White Sox need to win and you would hope have corrected by 2020. Now, they head to the Twin Cities to play the Minnesota Twins three times. The White Sox will have Reynaldo Lopez, Lucas Giolito, and Dylan Covey start the games against the Twins and they will use Jose Berrios, Martin Perez, and Jake Odorizzi to face the White Sox.
