Jackson's 4 RBIs lead M's past White Sox

SEATTLE — Austin Jackson, acquired in a trade with the Detroit Tigers before the deadline, matched a career-high with four RBIs to lead the Seattle Mariners to a 4-0 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Sunday.

Logan Morrison began a two-out rally for the Mariners in the second inning off Chicago's John Danks (9-8) with a hard line drive single off the wall in right field. Infield singles by Chris Taylor and Jesus Sucre loaded the bases for Jackson.

A career .400 hitter against Danks, Jackson doubled down the left field line to give the Mariners a 3-0 lead.

Seattle starter Erasmo Ramirez was pulled mid-batter in the fifth inning as Dominic Leone entered to face Gordon Beckham with a 2-1 count. Leone got Beckham to ground into a double play to end the inning.

Leone (5-2) picked up the victory and Fernando Rodney earned his 33rd save.
