|Lillibridge's HR Gives White Sox 4-2 Win Over M's
|SEATTLE (AP) -- Brent Lillibridge hit a tiebreaking two-run homer in the fifth inning, Jake Peavy pitched six strong innings for just his second win since late June and the Chicago White Sox beat the Seattle Mariners 4-2 on Friday night.
Lillibridge, a Seattle area native and former college star across town at Washington, snapped a 2-all tie with his 12th homer deep into the bullpen in left-center field off Seattle starter Charlie Furbush. Lillibridge had struck out in his first two at-bats before taking Furbush (3-6) deep.
Peavy made it stand up, despite giving up seven hits to the Mariners and wiggling out of jams with runners on in nearly every inning. Peavy (6-6) left after the sixth and three White Sox relievers closed out the victory.
