Rios Hits Second Straight Winning HR for White Sox
CHICAGO (AP) -- Alex Rios hit a game-ending two-run homer in the ninth after Paul Konerko homered, and the Chicago White Sox overcame a controversial call that led two runs in the in the top half of the inning to beat the Seattle Mariners 5-4 on Saturday.

Trailing 4-2 in the ninth with one out, Konerko hit a solo home run off Mariners closer David Aardsma (0-1). With two outs, Carlos Quentin walked, then a day after Andruw Jones hit a game-ending home run, Rios hit a 1-1 pitch in the left-field bleachers to win the game.

In the top of the inning, Casey Kotchman hit a two-run ground-rule double to give the Mariners a two-run lead.
