Chicago Cubs – Milwaukee Brewers   Postponed



Chicago White Sox 16 – Seattle Mariners 1

Highlights:  Avisail Garcia homered in his first two at-bats and had a career-high six RBI, and the White Sox battered Seattle’s depleted pitching staff in a 16-1 win over the Mariners on Saturday night. The White Sox knocked around Seattle starter Yovani Gallardo (2-4) and no one provided more shots than Garcia. He hit a three-run homer in the first inning, added a solo shot in the third and greeted reliever Dillion Overton with a two-run double in the fourth. The four hits tied a career high. Matt Davidson hit a two-run homer, Willy Garcia hit the first home run of his career into the second deck in left field. Every batter in Chicago’s lineup had at least one hit. Melky Cabrera and Todd Frazier both added two-run singles as the White Sox did their damage in bunches, scoring four in the first inning, five in the fourth and five in the seventh. Mike Pelfrey allowed just one run and four hits in six innings. Seattle’s only run came after Carlos Ruiz doubled and scored on Jean Segura‘s groundout in the fifth inning.
