"It's nice to see guys come back refreshed, a lot of energy in the clubhouse and our dugout, and it's playing out on the field".

Cruz may have been messing with a teammate in this instance, but he did provide a pretty valuable lesson to anyone considering charging the mound in anger.

"The rest of the at-bat was fine, but I couldn't get anything on a throw".

During the first inning of Sunday's Mariners-White Sox game in Chicago, White Sox lefty Derek Holland plunked Seattle slugger Nelson Cruz in the hip with a curveball.

For his big league career, Saladino is now batting.247 with 12 home runs and 62 RBIs to coincide with a.295 on-base percentage.

Holland wasn't helped by his defence, as shortstop Tim Anderson threw away a potential double-play ball for his 21st error of the season, tops in the majors by seven. Avisail Garcia finished with two hits, two stolen bases and two runs, but Sox hitters managed to do little else. Jose Abreu was expressionless as he reflected on the trade of Quintana, his friend and All-Star teammate. Nick Vincent (3-1) earned the win.

The Seattle Mariners will look to complete the sweep of the White Sox after a 4-3 win on Saturday gave the M's their fourth win in their last five games. Following this game against the White Sox, the Mariners play three more on the road against the Houston Astros before heading home.

He made another Andrew Moore pitch disappear in the third, this one good for two runs and a 5-0 lead. "And today was just not one of those days", Holland said.

"It's your livelihood, so why not talk about it?"

The Mariners rallied from an early 5-0 deficit and Nelson Cruz's 10th inning homer provided the winning run as Seattle beat Chicago 7-6. The corresponding move could depend on the health of Cruz, who has been bothered by a right knee injury.

The Mariners (46-47) now travel to take on American League West Division-leading Houston (62-30), starting at 5 p.m. PT Monday.

Fortunately for Frazier, he is better at knocking balls out of the park than he is at telling knock-knock jokes. "He's been working, swinging the bat, doing all the things that he needs to", Renteria said.

"He just didn't have the fastball command", Servais said. This will be Moore's first career start against the White Sox.
