Six Pack of Stats: Mariners 2, White Sox 1

Hello, Darkness, my old friend: Omar Narváez hits the walkoff home run to sail the Seattle Mariners to victory. (FanGraphs)

The Mariners prevail over the White Sox in a low-scoring, extra-innings, late-night ballgame

Of course, a West Coast game goes into extra-innings. Of course, another former Chicago White Sox decides the outcome of the game for the umpteenth time this season. It’s not ideal, but the tables will soon turn — some already have (Thanks, Eloy!).


Aaron Bummer is back on track! Bum pitched 1 2/3 innings of scoreless baseball between the seventh and eighth innings. With that stellar performance, Aaron created a .200 WPA to his name.


From the seventh inning and beyond, James McCann is a .346 hitter. In the seventh inning of tonight’s ballgame, McCann drew a walk to load the bases and to keep the even batting average. For part two of the stat, in the ninth, McCann struck out to lower the average just a smidge.


Alex Colomé has only blown one save in his 2019 campaign, and we admire him for it. For non-save situations, Alex owns a 4-4 record. Honestly, not too shabby for a closer, and it’s hard to be upset with the losses for how lockdown he has been all season. He’ll get them back!


My guy, Yolmer “No. 5” Sánchez, tallied a hit for himself in the leadoff spot! The next four guys in the order also notched a hit, so the first five hitters did not go hitless deep in the night. I’d like to thank Yolmer for his leadership and role-modeling skills.


Omar Narváez, on the opposite side of the baseball diamond, was the former owner of Zack Collins’ No. 38 jersey number with the Good Guys. Collins drove in the tying run of the game — from hustling off of a fielder’s choice — to eventually lead the game to extra innings. But, the former 38, hit a home run in the bottom of the tenth to seal the deal for Seattle over Chicago.


Dylan Cease used 106 pitches to get through five innings of a one-run ballgame. He lowered his ERA from 6.53 to 6.18 during that span. Even though Ceasefire much rather see the 106-pitch mark in the seven-plus innings, for now, he’ll certainly take it in the fifth with only one run given up.
