Aardsma gives up 3-run homer in ninth to lose 3-1

SEATTLE, Wash. --  Alexi Ramirez hit a three-run homer with one out in the top of the ninth off closer David Aardsma and the Chicago White Sox rallied for a stunning 3-1 victory over the Seattle Mariners on Tuesday night.

Ramirez jumped on a 2-2 pitch from Aardsma and lined the high fastball 370 feet into the White Sox bullpen in left. The White Sox were held to one hit over six innings by Seattle starter Doug Fister, who was making his major league debut. But Fister's effort was ruined by Aardsma's third blown save of the season.

Paul Konerko nearly tied it to open the ninth, flying out to the wall in center field. After a walk to A.J. Pierzynski and single by Carlos Quentin, Ramirez hit his 13th homer of the season.
