LHP Danks looking to end White Sox skid vs. Mariners

May 2, 2007 - 2:52 PM Chi White Sox (12-12) at Seattle (11-10) 3:35 pm EDT

SEATTLE (Ticker) -- The Chicago White Sox will rely on a rookie pitcher to help snap their three-game losing streak.

John Danks makes his fifth start of the season in the final game of a two-game series against the Seattle Mariners on Wednesday.

Danks (0-3, 5.32 ERA) is still searching for his first win after allowing four runs and nine hits in six innings in a 6-2 loss to Detroit last Thursday.

While the weather has warmed up, the Chicago bats are still cold. The White Sox managed just four hits in a 5-2 loss on Tuesday and are hitting a league worst .222.

Conversely, the Seattle Mariners have won six of seven and will send Miguel Batista (2-2, 7.54) to the mound as they look to win their fourth series in a row.

In his last outing, Batista allowed two runs and five hits in 5 1/3 innings in a 4-2 win over Oakland on Thursday.

Jose Vidro will be looking to extend his 13-game hitting streak for the Mariners, who will embark on a eight-game road trip following this contest.
