|ChiSox Fall to Mariners' Split Squad
|GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) -- Matt Tuiasosopo had three hits, and Franklin Gutierrez and Chris Woodward each had a run-scoring sacrifice fly to lead a Seattle Mariners split squad to a 5-4 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Monday.
Paul Konerko and Alex Rios connected for their first home runs of spring training for Chicago, but the pair of solo shots weren't enough to overcome Seattle's 11 hits.
Konerko's blast came off Mariners starter Ryan Rowland-Smith in the second inning. Rios, making his first start in center field after being limited to designated hitter duty because of a sore shoulder, went deep in the fifth. It easily cleared the center field fence in one of the deepest parts of the stadium.
Gavin Floyd struck out three in two innings of work for Chicago.
