Chicago, IL (Sports Network) - Kendrys Morales and Jesus Montero drove in runs
in the 10th inning, and Tom Wilhelmsen escaped a bases-loaded jam in the
bottom half to preserve Seattle's 8-7 win over the Chicago White Sox.
DeWayne Wise singled in Alex Rios with two outs to get the White Sox within a
run and Alexei Ramirez walked to fill the bases. Wilhelmsen, in relief of
Kameron Loe (1-0), then fanned Tyler Flowers to earn his second save of the
year. Wilhelmsen threw 34 pitches in the final inning.
Franklin Gutierrez went 3-for-5 with a leadoff homer and drove in three runs
for the Mariners. Morales knocked in two runs as the Mariners won on the South
Side of Chicago for just the fourth time in their last 23 tries.
Alejandro De Aza belted a two-run homer and Rios delivered a solo blast for
the White Sox, but Nate Jones (0-1) gave up four hits and two runs and was
saddled with his first major league defeat after going 8-0 last season.
