M's Rally in 9th to Beat White Sox


SEATTLE, Wa - It's the kind of spark that can put the bounce back in the Seattle Mariners' step.

After being shut down by Chicago starter Chris Sale for eight innings on Monday night Seattle went into the bottom of the ninth down 3-0.

But, the Mariners rallied to score four times and win on a walk-off, three-run homer by Adam Lind.

Sale allowed just one hit in eight innings before being replaced by closer David Robertson.

Franklin Gutierrez lead off the ninth with a base hit and Robinson Cano reached first on a fielder's choice.

After walking Nelson Cruz, Robertson struck out Dae-Ho Lee.

But, with two outs, Kyle Seager's base hit to center drove home Cano to put Seattle on the board.

Lind came in to pinch hit for catcher Chris Iannetta and homered over the right field wall to give the M's the come from behind victory.

Monday's win puts the Mariners back over .500 at 47-46; Seattle remains in third place in the AL West, 7 1/2 games behind first place Texas and 4 1/2 games behind in the AL Wild Card race.

The Mariners and White Sox resume their three-game series Tuesday night at Safeco Field, game time scheduled for 7:10 p.m.
