Score six runs, you ought to win most games. Get a 6-5 lead in the seventh, same thing - especially if you're the Seattle Mariners and your bullpen is your pride and joy.
For the third time in six road losses, however, the Mariners lost on a walk-off hit. That stings.
Ryan Rowland-Smith was charged with five runs - three earned - but one of those scored with Kanekoa Texeira on the mound and came after a Matt Tuiasosopo error.
Sean White was charged with one run, bu it scored when Brandon League, trying to get White out of the inning, gave up a game-tying double to Alex Rios.
Then, two outs into the ninth inning, Mark Lowe spun a slider and Andruw Jones hit his second home run of the night - and his seventh career walk-off home run.
The Mariners bullpen remains one of the team's strengths. Against the White Sox, they didn't have their finest game, and now Seattle must still prove it can win on the road.
Six runs ought to have done that.
