|Ichiro Delivers Big Hit in Mariners' Win Over White Sox
|SEATTLE (AP) -- Ichiro Suzuki hit a game-ending single to center in the bottom of the 14th inning, leading the Seattle Mariners to a 4-3 win over the Chicago White Sox Thursday night.
Jose Lopez and Bill Hall each homered off White Sox closer Bobby Jenks in the ninth to tie it and deny the White Sox a chance to gain on AL Central-leading Detroit, which lost 9-2 to the Royals. Chicago, third in the division, trails Detroit by 6 1/2 games and Minnesota by 4.
With one out in the 14th, Ryan Langerhans singled to center off Scott Linebrink (3-7). Pinch-hitter Kenji Johjima was hit by a pitch then Suzuki hit his 205th hit of the season, scoring Langerhans.
Shawn Kelley (5-3) pitched two hitless innings.
