Flowers’ homer sinks Mariners in 5-4 loss

CHICAGO — Tyler Flowers hit a tying homer and Dewayne Wise delivered a go-ahead RBI single in Chicago’s two-run sixth inning, lifting the White Sox to a 5-4 victory over the Seattle Mariners on Saturday night for their fifth straight win.

Seattle took a quick first-inning lead on Kyle Seager’s three-run homer before the White Sox rallied to preserve their 2 1/2-game lead over second-place Detroit in the AL Central. Seager also connected in the ninth against closer Addison Reed to get the Mariners to within a run.

Flowers, who entered in the top of the third when starting catcher A.J. Pierzynski and manager Robin Ventura were ejected, led off the sixth with his fifth homer of the season.
