Pierzinski Go-Ahead Hit Leads White Sox Past M's
SEATTLE (AP -- A.J. Pierzynski hit a two-run, go-ahead single in the seventh inning and the Chicago White Sox beat the Seattle Mariners 6-3 Tuesday night.

Shawn Kelley (4-3) gave up a pair of singles to lead off the inning. The White Sox then broke the game open, taking advantage of a shaky Seattle bullpen. Pierzynski got his hit off Mark Lowe.

Ken Griffey Jr. hit his 626th home run - 15th this season - for the Mariners. It came off former Seattle ace Freddy Garcia, the 404th pitcher to give up a homer to Griffey.
