Raleigh hits walk-off grand slam as Mariners rally late to beat White Sox 8-4

SEATTLE (AP) - Cal Raleigh hit a game-winning grand slam in the bottom of the ninth inning and the Seattle Mariners stormed back from a four-run deficit in the eighth to beat the Chicago White Sox 8-4 on Monday night.

Raleigh's walk-off drive came against Jordan Leasure (0-2) after the AL West leaders scored four times in the eighth to tie it.

Dominic Canzone led off with a homer against starter Erick Fedde before Michael Kopech gave up three runs and four hits. Mitch Haniger knocked in two with a bases-loaded single, and Luke Raley drove in the tying run with a bunt single.

J.P. Crawford and Josh Rojas walked with one out in the ninth before Julio Rodriguez's single loaded the bases. Raleigh sent a 2-0 fastball 383 feet into the right-field seats to send the Seattle crowd home happy.

Ryne Stanek (4-1) struck out three in a scoreless inning for the win.

Luis Robert Jr. and Corey Julks homered for the major league-worst White Sox (17-50).

Seattle's offense struggled early, as both pitchers got off to strong starts. Fedde allowed just three hits over his first five shutout innings, and Mariners starter Logan Gilbert permitted just two hits in the same span.
