Recap: Seattle vs. Chicago WSox

Seattle, WA (SportsNetwork.com) - Austin Jackson smacked a three-run double and drove in all four Seattle runs as the Mariners topped the Chicago White Sox, 4-2, in the finale of a three-game set.

Chicago seriously threatened Fernando Rodney in the ninth.

Alexei Ramirez and Jose Abreu singled before Adam Dunn and Dayan Viciedo struck out. Conor Gillaspie rolled a base hit up the middle to plate Ramirez and Tyler Flowers was hit by a pitch to load the bases.

Rodney, though, buckled down to fan Jordan Danks on three pitches to notch his 33rd save of the year.

Erasmo Ramirez scattered four hits and walked one before being pulled with one out in the fifth inning. Dominic Leone (5-2) came on to toss 1 2/3 scoreless frames to notch the win.

Chris Taylor posted two hits and two runs scored for the Mariners, who have won five of their last six games.

John Danks (9-8) allowed four runs on eight hits and two walks over 6 1/3 innings for Chicago, which has dropped seven of its last nine games. Tyler Flowers homered in defeat.

"Johnny pitched a good game," White Sox manager Robin Ventura said of his starting pitcher. "You get a couple infield rollers and Jackson had a good day, but I thought Johnny pitched well enough to win the game."

The Mariners jumped out to a 4-0 lead after plating three runs in the second and another in the seventh.

Three straight two-out singles by Taylor, Logan Morrison and Jesus Sucre loaded the bases before Jackson cleared them when he looped his double down the left-field line.

"It was a big situation, just to put the ball in play and not try and do too much," Jackson said. "I was able to get a pitch out over the plate and put a good swing on it."

Taylor coaxed a walk to begin the seventh, moved to second on Sucre's sacrifice bunt and scored on Jackson's base hit through the hole on the left side for Seattle's four-run cushion.

The White Sox got on the board in the eighth on Flowers' leadoff shot to left before making things interesting in the ninth.
