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.
