Mariners 10, White Sox 8 (12):
John Jaso delivered the tiebreaking double as visiting Seattle scored twice in the 12th inning to snap Chicago’s nine-game win streak.

Chone Figgins added a run-scoring single in the 12th and Ichiro Suzuki hit two of the Mariners’ four homers as Seattle defeated the White Sox for the first time in five meetings this season.
