He hit a three run homer in the first inning, added a solo shot in the third and greeted reliever cheap Dillon Overton jersey with a two run double in the fourth. Garcia was on a tear entering the game, hitting .361 in his previous nine games and finished with 4 for 5, adding another double in the seventh. The four hits tied a career high.

Lost in the offensive firepower by Chicago was the best performance of the season by starting pitcher cheap Mike Pelfrey jersey, who allowed just one run and four hits in six innings. Pelfrey had pitched into the fifth inning just once since joining the White Sox jerseys rotation in late April, but Seattle suddenly silent offense managed little.
