Mariners fall to White Sox, Paxton leaves after 24 pitches

SEATTLE (AP) — Jose Abreu hammered a grand slam into the second deck for his 200th career home run, Luis Robert and Zack Collins both went deep for the first time this season and the Chicago White Sox beat the Seattle Mariners 10-4. The miserable night for Seattle began with starting pitcher James Paxton leaving in the second inning due to a left forearm strain. Robert snapped a 3-all tie with a two-run shot off Nick Margevicius in the fifth. Collins had given the White Sox an early lead in the second by greeting Margevicius with a three-run shot. Abreu provided the capper with the fourth grand slam of his career and second this season.  

SEATTLE (AP) — Left-hander James Paxton departed the first start of his second stint with the Seattle Mariners due to forearm strain after throwing just 24 pitches against the White Sox. Paxton grimaced after throwing a 92 mph fastball to Chicago’s Andrew Vaughn with one out in the second inning. Manager Scott Servais and a trainer immediately came to the mound while Paxton bent over with his hands on his knees. After some discussion, Paxton walked off and was replaced by Nick Margevicius. Paxton remained in the dugout to watch after he left the mound.
