Jackson's 4 RBIs lead M's past White Sox

SEATTLE (AP) - Austin Jackson, acquired in a trade with the Detroit Tigers before the deadline, matched a career-high with four RBIs to lead the Seattle Mariners to a 4-2 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Sunday.

     Logan Morrison began a two-out rally for the Mariners in the second inning off Chicago's John Danks with a hard line drive single off the wall in right field. Infield singles by Chris Taylor and Jesus Sucre loaded the bases for Jackson.

     A career .400 hitter against Danks, Jackson doubled down the left field line to give the Mariners a 3-0 lead. He finished 3 for 4.

     Seattle starter Erasmo Ramirez was pulled mid-batter in the fifth inning as Dominic Leone entered to face Gordon Beckham with a 2-1 count. Leone got Beckham to ground into a double play to end the inning.

     Leone picked up the victory and Fernando Rodney earned his 33rd save.
