Elias, Ackley lead Seattle to rout of White Sox
Elias allowed only one walk before Conor Gilaspie hit a one-out double in the fifth. The rookie stranded Gilaspie, but left the game after giving up a two-run home run to Dayan Viciedo with two outs in the sixth. Elias allowed a season-low two hits, walked three, and struck out five.
Ackley gave the Mariners an early lead with a solo home run, and Endy Chavez, Robinson Cano, and Kyle Seager added two-run shots.
Scott Carroll pitched five-plus innings, allowing seven runs on seven hits. He walked three and hit a batter. Four relievers combined to allow six runs, five hits, and four walks.
