SEATTLE (AP) 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. He finished 3 for 4.

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 Rodneyearned his 33rd save.

Taylor drew a leadoff walk in the seventh inning and moved to second on a sacrifice bunt by Sucre. Jackson singled to left as Taylor beat the throw home from Alejandro De Aza to give Seattle a 4-0 lead.

Tyler Flowers homered off Tom Wilhelmsen to lead off the seventh for Chicago.
