Ichiro wins it in 14th

M’s tie game with 2 HRs in 9th

Associated Press

SEATTLE – Ichiro Suzuki hit a game-ending single to center in the bottom of the 14th inning, leading the Mariners to a 4-3 win over the Chicago White Sox on Thursday night.

Jose Lopez and Bill Hall each homered off White Sox closer Bobby Jenks in the ninth to tie it and deny the White Sox a chance to gain on A.L. Central-leading Detroit, which lost 9-2 to Kansas City. Chicago, third in the division, trails Detroit by 6 1/2 games and Minnesota by 4.

With one out in the 14th, Ryan Langerhans singled to center off Scott Linebrink (3-7). Pinch-hitter Kenji Johjima was hit by a pitch then Ichiro hit his 205th hit of the season, scoring Langerhans.

As he rounded first base, the Mariners spilled out of the dugout and chased the star right fielder all the way into the outfield.

Shawn Kelley (5-3) pitched two hitless innings.

White Sox left-hander John Danks pitched eight innings, allowing just four hits and a run.

Mariners starter Brandon Morrow again struggled with his control, walking a career-high six in 52/3 innings. The Mariners’ 2006 first-round pick failed to live up to his manager’s insistence that he pitch deeper in games.

Burke traded

Seattle sent catcher Jamie Burke to the Washington Nationals for cash. The 37-year-old Burke is a career .282 hitter with three home runs and 38 RBIs in 184 games for seven seasons.

He played in 13 games with Seattle this season.
