Flowers' HR for White Sox beats rain, Mariners 4-3

Posted: Updated:

CHICAGO (AP) - Tyler Flowers hit a go-ahead homer just before the final downpour and the Chicago White Sox beat the Seattle Mariners 4-3 in a rain-shortened game Sunday for their sixth straight victory.

 

Immediately following a 6-minute rain delay in the seventh inning, Flowers launched a two-run shot off Kevin Millwood to lead first-place Chicago to its second consecutive series sweep.

 

Rain continued to pour until the tarp was put on to stay two batters later, and the game was called after a wait of nearly 2 hours.

 

The start was delayed for 1 hour, 51 minutes due to showers that persisted throughout the game before it was finally stopped.
