Recap: Seattle vs. Chicago WSox

Seattle, WA (SportsNetwork.com) - Kyle Seager, Robinson Cano, Endy Chavez and Dustin Ackley homered as the Seattle Mariners routed the Chicago White Sox, 13-3, in the opener of a four-game series.

Ackley knocked in four runs and scored twice for the Mariners, who have won three in a row. Chavez had three RBI and scored a pair of runs.

"We had a good night," said Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon. "I think we're coming (offensively). We're getting there."

Seattle starter Roenis Elias (9-9) took a no-hitter into the fifth and allowed two runs on two hits with five strikeouts over 5 2/3 innings. Elias had lost four of his previous five decisions.

Dayan Viciedo hit a two-run homer for the White Sox, who have dropped three straight. Scott Carroll (4-7) gave up seven runs on seven hits with three walks over five-plus innings.

"It starts with me on the mound. I didn't have a good performance, and it transitions over to guys pressing I guess, trying to make things happen without good starting pitching," said Carroll.

The Mariners took a 1-0 lead on Ackley's homer in the first.

Chavez added a two-run homer in the fourth. Mike Zunino hit a two-out single and crossed the plate on Chavez's blast to right.

Elias' no-hit bid came to an end in the fifth when Conor Gillaspie hit a one- out double to right. Moises Sierra worked a two-out walk before Gordon Beckham popped out to first.

The home run parade continued in the bottom half. Ackley walked and scored on Cano's blast to right.

The White Sox hit a home run of their own in the sixth. Jose Abreu was hit by a pitch and crossed the plate on Viciedo's shot to right-center field.

But the Mariners responded with three runs in the home half. With the bases loaded and two outs, Ackley hit a two-run single to left off Daniel Webb. Austin Jackson then scored on a wild pitch to make it 8-2.

Seattle tacked on three more runs in the seventh. Logan Morrison's RBI double, Chavez's run-scoring single and Ackley's RBI groundout made it an 11-2 contest.

Alexei Ramirez hit an RBI double in the top of the eighth. But Seager hit a two-run homer in the bottom half.
