Ichiro hits 2 HRs, Mariners score 2 in 12th and Hisashi Iwakuma gets the save

Ichiro Suzuki homered twice and Seattle’s bullpen shut out the White Sox over the final four innings to end Chicago’s longest winning streak since July 2010.

Tom Wilhelmsen (2-1) pitched three scoreless innings, allowing one hit, for the victory. Hisashi Iwakuma earned his second save by pitching the 12th, retiring Adam Dunn on a grounder with a runner on second to end it.

Suzuki, just moved back to the leadoff spot Friday, hit two solo homers on a breezy, 73-degree day at U.S. Cellular Field. In addition to Suzuki and Saunders, Justin Smoak also went deep off Chicago starter Gavin Floyd.

Suzuki homered to start the game, the 37th leadoff homer of his career. Smoak led off the second with another shot and then Suzuki went deep again leading off the third — the sixth multihomer game of his career.
