Mariners starters versus White Sox this series:
11 1/3 IP, 24 hits, 21 runs, 7 walks, 0 strikeouts, 6 home runs
Washburn, Hernandez, and Dickey faced 63 batters – they didn’t strike out a single one. That’s only slightly worse than the weekend series in Minnesota, when Silva, Rowland-Smith, and Feierabend combined to strike out a whopping two batters.
The M’s starting pitchers have combined for two strikeouts in their last six starts. The odds of that have to be astronomical.
