Things are not going well these days for the Chicago White Sox.

They entered play on Monday night with losses in four straight games, to last-place teams (the Angels for three games, the Braves for one game). And they scored only ONE run over those four games.

Well, they actually scored three runs on Monday against the Seattle Mariners at Safeco Field. They took a 3-0 lead into the bottom of the ninth… and lost 4-3.

Watch Seattle’s Adam Lind hit a three-run homer off White Sox closer David Robertson to win it for the Mariners with two outs in the ninth:

Oh dear. White Sox ace Chris Sale had thrown eight shutout innings, allowing just one hit, and they still couldn’t get a win. Brutal.

The Mariners had been in a bit of a funk themselves, so this was a massive win, putting them back over .500 at 47-46. They now lead the majors in walk-off home runs this season, with five:

Lind is now the first player to hit multiple walk-off home runs with his team trailing by multiple runs in a season since David Ortiz in 2006:

So, what a huge win for the Mariners, and an absolutely crushing loss for the White Sox. Chicago is now 45-47 and playing their worst baseball of the season. It would probably be wise for them to be sellers, but we’ll see if Jerry Reinsdorf will actually admit that.
