Montero Helps Mariners Beat White Sox 7-4

montero smFernando Rodney gave up a run and two hits in his debut with the Seattle but Jesus Montero had two singles and an RBI to help the Mariners beat a Chicago White Sox split-squad 7-4 Thursday. Montero's second hit came in the seventh to cap the Mariners' three-run, go-ahead rally.

Montero is coming back from a 50-game suspension for his involvement in the Biogenesis scandal and a season-ending knee surgery. Scott Baker continued to make a good impression in his bid for winning a rotation spot. He allowed one run and three hits over three innings in his second start. White Sox left-hander John Danks yielded one hit, walked two and struck out two in his first three innings of the spring as he tries to bounce back from going 4-14 in 2013.
