Mariners Vs. White Sox: Chicago Earns Fifth Straight Victory With 5-4 Win

The White Sox stretched their winning streak to five on Saturday with a 5-4 win over the Seattle Mariners to keep command of the American League Central.

The Mariners were the ones that got to scoring first, though, with a three-run home run in the top of the first from Kyle Seager. However, the White Sox pitching was able to stifle the Seattle offense after that, holding them scoreless for the next seven innings.

Meanwhile, the White Sox picked up runs in the first and third innings before taking the lead in the sixth and adding one more run in the eighth.

Seattle attempted a late, two-out rally in the ninth with another Seager home run to close the Chicago lead to one run, but a harmless foul out from John Jaso to third base stranded Justin Smoak on first and ended the game.

Nate Jones earned the win for the White Sox despite throwing just one pitch in relief in the sixth inning and improved his record to 6-0.
