Evan White simply was the offense for the M's on Friday when he went 2-for-3 with a solo home run as the Mariners lost to the Padres 6-1.
The Mariners mustered only three hits all night and White was responsible for two of them. He took Pierce Johnson deep in the eighth inning, his sixth HR of the year, to put the Mariners only run on the board. It was his first home run since August 22nd. Even with the multi-hit performance White is still batting well below .200 at .173 with a .589 OPS across 150 at-bats. It's been a rough rookie season the promising 24-year old.
Evan White went 0-for-3 with a strikeout and a walk in the Mariners 6-4 loss to the Giants on Thursday.
The struggles continue for White, who is now on a 7-for-43 cold streak in September with no home runs and just one extra-base hit. The first baseman's first "full" season hasn't gone as expected as he's shown flashes of his talent but hasn't hit the ball with any semblance of consistency. White owns a .163/.248/.306 batting line with five home runs, 20 RBI, and a rough 65:16 K/BB ratio across 147 at-bats. The Mariners have given him every chance to succeed so the hope is that he can turn things around and finish the final 10 games on a high note.
Evan White went 1-for-3 with a single, a walk, and a run in the Mariners' 8-4 win over the Texas Rangers on Monday.

Evan White went 2-for-4 with a double, a run scored, two RBI, and two walks as the Mariners took down the Rangers 6-3 on Friday.
White laced a two run double, his sixth of the year, off John King in the bottom of the fourth to put the M's up 3-0. It's been an up and down year for the 24-year old rookie so far. The upside is there but the first baseman has struggled with consistency, notching .179/.254/.377 batting line with a 47:10 strikeout to walk ratio. He has hit five homers and driven in 19 runs but six of those came in one game.
