CHICAGO (AP) - Alex Rios hit a tiebreaking, two-run homer off Felix Hernandez in the sixth inning and the Chicago White Sox beat the Seattle Mariners 4-3 on Saturday.

With one out and Alejandro De Aza aboard after a leadoff single, Rios drove an 0-2 pitch through a tricky wind and way over the wall in left for his second homer in two days. He also connected for a solo shot Friday night, but the White Sox lost 8-7 in 10 innings.

Hernandez (1-1) allowed four runs and six hits over 6 1-3 innings in his first try for win No. 100. The right-hander, who turns 27 on Monday, struck out three to give him 1,498 for his career.
