Seattle Mariners Team Report - May 4

(Sports Network) - The Seattle Mariners have won two straight and will look to capture their first road series sweep of the 2003 season tonight in the finale of a three-game set against the Chicago White Sox at U.S. Cellular Field.

Seattle, which is looking to make it three wins in a row, will send Gil Meche to the mound today. This will be the sixth start of the season for the 24- year-old. In his last outing, Meche shut down the powerful Yankees by throwing 7 2/3 innings of shutout baseball, scattering six hits to record the victory at Yankee Stadium on Tuesday.

The young righthander has won three of his last four outings and his lone loss came in his first start of the season on April 5th against the Texas Rangers. In that contest, Meche allowed six runs on nine hits in five innings of work.

Meche is 2-1 against the White Sox in three career starts, posting an ERA of 4.86.

Last night, Mike Cameron went 2-for-4 with a home run and six RBI and Freddy Garcia pitched six strong innings, leading the Mariners to a 12-2 rout of the White Sox in the middle contest of this series.

Cameron knocked in three runs in both the first and second innings, continuing to haunt his former club. He has enjoyed some incredible success in Chicago the past two seasons. Cameron went 3-for-3 with a home run and three runs scored during a 9-2 win in the opener of the series on Friday and also tied the major-league record for home runs in a game with four against the White Sox on May 2, 2002.

Jeff Cirillo and Carlos Guillen each went 2-for-4 with two runs scored and three RBI for the Mariners, who have won two straight and nine of their last 12. Garcia (3-3) gave up just one run and three hits to earn the victory. He struck out three and walked just one on his way to picking up his second straight win.

Seattle's Dan Wilson extended his hitting streak to 10 games with single in the third.
