Mercedes gets 3 More Hits, White Sox Blank Mariners 6-0
SEATTLE (AP) — Yermín Mercedes continued his early season tear with three hits, Carlos Rodon struck out nine and the Chicago White Sox held the Seattle Mariners to three hits in a 6-0 victory. Mercedes is the first player since at least 1900 to total 12 hits in his first four career starts — all in the first week of this season. He was also the first player since at least 1900 to start a season 8 for 8. The 28-year-old designated hitter is up to 12 of 18. Yasmani Grandal hit his 150th homer, driving in three and scoring twice to help Chicago snap a two-game skid. He also guided three White Sox pitchers through a three-hitter.
