Mariners honor Cornell with moment of silence, scoreboard tribute
Mariners honor Cornell with moment of silence, scoreboard tribute

On Wednesday, the music industry lost one of the architects of the grunge era when singer/songwriter Chris Cornell was found dead by suicide in a hotel room in Detroit.

As the world mourned the loss of the former Soundgarden and Audioslave frontman, the Mariners made sure to pay tribute to the Seattle-born Cornell Thursday night before, and during, their contest against the Chicago White Sox.

The Mariners emblazoned the Safeco Field scoreboard with a photo of Cornell during the contest and also held a pregame moment of silence.

Cornell, who was 52 years old at the time of his death, won two Grammy awards with Soundgarden in 1995.
