White Sox Shut Out by Seattle, Jenks Ties MLB Record

Jeff Weaver tossed a five-hitter and the Seattle Mariners kept their share of the AL wild-card race by blanking the Chicago White Sox 6-0.

Weaver allowed five hits and no walks while striking out eight in his second shutout of the season. He's 4-10 after winning back-to-back starts following a four-game losing streak.

Adrian Beltre hit a two-run homer for the Mariners, who've won eleven of 15 and are tied with the New York Yankees for the wild card.

Jose Guillen and Richie Sexson also homered for the winners.

White Sox starter John Danks gave up all six runs and eight hits in four and a-third. He's 6-and-10.

White Sox reliever Bobby Jenks pitched a perfect ninth, breaking David Well's AL record and tying the major league mark of 41 straight batters retired. Jim Bar also retired 41 in a row for San Francisco in 1972.
