How do you follow up perfection? That task is hard to do, but it will be handed to John Danks to accomplish. The Chicago White Sox take on the Seattle Mariners to end a three game series this afternoon in Seattle. Philip Humber pitched the major league’s 21st perfect game in the history of the sport yesterday, in the White Sox 4-0 win. He only threw 96 pitches in the game, striking out nine, including the last out of the game.

Danks has the unenviable task of taking the mound following Humber’s perfect game. Danks is 1-2 on the season with an ERA of 4.82. The southpaw has won five consecutive starts against Seattle at Safeco Park and has not given up a run in 18 1/3 innings against the Mariners in Seattle.

Facing Danks will be Kevin Millwood. Millwood on the season has no decisions, but his ERA is high at 6.30. He had a difficult time in the team’s 9-8 loss against Cleveland last Tuesday. He gave up nine hits and seven runs in just four innings. In the fifth inning of that game, five batters reached safety without an out recorded, before he was relieved. His career stats against Chicago are 1-5 with an ERA of 3.14 over 11 starts.

Offensively Adam Dunn for the White Sox has 8 hits in 19 at bats, with six round trippers against Millwood. Dunn hit two homers against Seattle Friday night, but was held hitless on Saturday. Paul Konerko is 10 for 27 in his career against Millwood and has two homers this season and a .353 batting average.

On the season, the White Sox are 8-6 and the Mariners are 7-9. In this third and final game of the series, the total is at 7 with the White Sox favored at -130 and the Mariners at +110.
