Recap


White Sox 7, Mariners 4: Alex Rios had three hits and three RBIs and Kosuke Fukudome drove in two runs to lead visiting Chicago to a three-game sweep and send Seattle to its fourth straight loss. 

The Mariners' offense showed more life than in Saturday's game, when Chicago's Philip Humber threw a perfect game against them, taking a 4-2 lead through four innings. But the White Sox tied it on Rios' two-run triple in the sixth and took the lead on Fukudome's sacrifice fly later in the inning.

Rios and Fukudome added back-to-back RBI singles in the eighth to give the White Sox some cushion.

White Sox left-hander John Danks (2-2) was not at his sharpest - he walked four and allowed four runs on seven hits over six innings - but Chicago's bullpen trio of Addison Reed, Matt Thornton and closer Hector Santiago pitched a scoreless inning apiece.

Santiago earned his fourth save in five chances. 

Mariners right-hander Kevin Millwood (0-1) allowed five runs on eight hits in 5 1/3 innings. He dropped to 1-6 in 12 career outings against Chicago.

GAME NOTEBOOK: The White Sox have won 10 of the past 11 meetings with Seattle, including six straight. … Danks improved 7-4 in 12 starts against Seattle. … The Mariners have lost seven of their last eight Sunday games.
