Lind’s 9th inning homer ruins start by Sale, White Sox
Adam Lind spoiled Chicago starter Chris Sale’s latest gem with a three-run, walk-off home run off White Sox closer David Robertson in the bottom of the ninth inning to give Seattle a win.
Sale threw eight shutout innings and the White Sox bats finally came alive, but it wasn’t enough on a night when Seattle scored four runs with two outs in the bottom of the ninth.
After Mariners third baseman Kyle Seager drove in Seattle’s first run of the game with a two-out RBI single off Robertson, Lind came on to pinch-hit and delivered his second walk-off homer of the season. He hit an 0-1 pitch from Robertson (0-2) into the right-field seats to spoil Sale’s bid to become the first 15-game winner in the majors this season.
