SEATTLE (AP) — Zach Remillard’s base hit in the ninth inning scored the tying run, his RBI single with two outs in the 11th gave Chicago the lead, and the White Sox rallied for a 4-3 win over the Seattle Mariners on Saturday.

Chicago White Sox 4, Seattle Mariners 3: Box Score

Remillard, making his major league debut, wasn’t in the lineup for Chicago until Tim Anderson left in the fourth inning with a sore shoulder. But Remillard made his first game memorable with the two biggest hits to help the White Sox win for the second time in seven games.

Andrew Benintendi singled off Seattle reliever Tayler Saucedo (2-1) with two outs in the 11th to put runners at the corners, his sixth time on base in the game. Remillard followed with a line drive into right-center that scored Elvis Andrus.

Jesse Scholtens pitched the bottom of the 11th for his first major league save.

Andrus also scored on Remillard’s single in the ninth that forced extra innings. Remillard singled with one out off Paul Sewald to tie it 3-all. Andrus opened the ninth with a single and advanced to second on Benintendi’s walk.

It was Sewald’s second blown save of the season.

Eloy Jiménez homered for the second time in three games, hitting his eighth of the season for Chicago. Luis Robert Jr. had a two-out RBI single in the fifth to pull the White Sox even at 2.

Seattle’s J.P. Crawford homered on Lucas Giolito’s first pitch and Teoscar Hernández extended his June tear with an RBI single, but the Mariners failed with a chance to win the game in the 10th inning. Pinch-hitter Cal Raleigh struck out and Eugenio Suárez grounded out against Aaron Bummer (2-1) with Julio Rodríguez standing at third as the potential winning run.

Seattle didn’t have a hit after Hernández’s single in the fifth.


Logan Gilbert threw 5 1/3 innings for Seattle, allowing two runs and six hits. It was a solid rebound for Gilbert after he lasted just three innings and gave up six runs in his last start against the Angels.

Giolito had allowed only one earned run over 13 innings in his previous two starts. He gave up eight hits, walked three and struck out five.


Anderson’s day started with him moved out of Chicago’s leadoff spot for the first time since the end of the 2019 season and ended with him leaving in the fourth inning.

The shortstop’s move to the No. 2 hole in the batting order snapped a streak of 299 consecutive starts atop the lineup. The last time Anderson started and hit somewhere other than first was the final game of the 2019 regular season when he batted second.

The team said Anderson was day-to-day with shoulder soreness.


White Sox: RHP Lance Lynn (4-6, 6.72 ERA) allowed four earned runs and two homers in his last start against the Dodgers. In his career, Lynn is 4-1 with a 1.93 ERA in seven starts against Seattle.

Mariners: RHP Bryce Miller (4-3, 4.06) allowed one hit and struck out six over six innings in his last start against Miami. Miller has four starts this season of at least six innings and two or fewer hits allowed.
