SEATTLE -- It didnt matter the Chicago Cubs nearly blew a six-run lead against the Seattle Mariners on Sunday. Swingman Dennis Schroder Jersey . As far as starting pitcher Edwin Jackson is concerned, the only important part was that the Cubs hung on for a 7-6 victory. "An ugly win is better than a pretty loss any day," Jackson said. "We were fortunate enough that we had a lot of runs so when they did come back and score there we were still winning. Thats the most important thing, when you come out of the inning that youre still winning, regardless of how they came back." Chicago led 7-1 after four innings. The Mariners comeback started against Jackson (4-10), who pitched into the seventh inning, allowing three runs and seven hits and striking out six. But it really got going once the game was turned over to the Cubs bullpen, which has blown 16 save chances this season and gave up three runs in the eighth against Seattle. "It looked real easy for a while, but we all know thats why we play nine innings," Cubs manager Dale Sveum said. It was jokingly suggested to Sveum the Cubs might prefer only playing seven innings to cut out the late-inning issues with the bullpen. "No kidding," Sveum said, laughing. "If we go back to Little League days, wed be OK." The Cubs tied a season high by hitting six doubles, including two each by Alfonso Soriano and Darwin Barney. Anthony Rizzo drove in two runs for Chicago, which took two out of three in the series against Seattle. Kevin Gregg pitched a hitless ninth for his 13th save, a day after blowing his first save chance of the season. "I want to pitch every day," Gregg said. "Coming off a blown save yesterday, I want to get right back out there. I dont want to sit on it at all." Seattle starter Jeremy Bonderman (1-2) was chased after giving up six runs -- four earned -- and six hits in 3 1-3 innings. It was his shortest start since going 2 1-3 innings on July 29, 2007 with Detroit. The loss was the first for Bonderman since being called up June 2 and making his first major league appearance since 2010. That time out, he gave up seven runs in 4 2-3 innings, but since he had been on a roll, giving up a total of four runs in the four starts before Sunday. Bondermans trouble against the Cubs started in the second inning when the Cubs doubled four times, leading to three runs. Soriano and Rizzo led off the inning with doubles, and with one out Brian Bogusevic and Barney hit consecutive RBI doubles. "Doubles are good. Runs are better," Barney said. "Once something good happens, good things start going through your mind, and thats the whole battle in this game." In the fourth, Barney led off with another double and scored when Wellington Castillos grounder to third went through Kyle Seagers legs for a two-base error. Starlin Castros run-scoring single marked the end for Bonderman. Reliever Blake Beavan gave up an RBI double to Soriano and another run on Rizzos single as the Cubs took their 7-1 lead. That was the end of the offence for Chicago, which managed only one hit over the final five innings. "At this level you cant ever assume," Barney said. "Once you start assuming, you start laying down a little bit. Thats just not a luxury we have -- or anyone has." The Mariners comeback got going in the fifth when Nick Franklins single drove in a run. Bays leadoff homer in the seventh cut the lead to 7-3. Raul Ibanez led off the eighth with his 19th homer of the season against reliever Shawn Camp. Kendrys Morales singled and Seager broke an 0-for-19 slump with a deep home run down the right-field line to bring the Mariners within a run before reliever Hector Rondon and Gregg shut down the rally. "We had our opportunities, fought back and got close," Seattle manager Eric Wedge said. "But thats not good enough." NOTES: Cubs OF Ryan Sweeney will be placed on the disabled list after breaking a rib on his left side crashing into an outfield wall. Sweeney will be held out of baseball activities for four to six weeks. ... Seattle CF Dustin Ackley should be able to return "in a couple days" after spraining his right thumb Saturday, manager Eric Wedge said. "All things considered, could be a lot worse," Wedge said. Hawks Jersey .5 seconds to play in the game, Kevin Love never stopped believing that they would come out of there with a win. Swingman Tracy Mcgrady Jersey . Now, with Game 6 set for Fenway Park and an 8:07 p.m. ET first pitch, the Detroit Tigers face the unenviable task of having to beat the Boston Red Sox twice, on the road, to advance to the World Series. ... ll-jersey/ . 10 Texas A&Ms offence dominated as usual against SMU.ATLANTA -- Mardy Fish took a hit in his gradual return to full-time tennis, falling 4-6, 6-2, 7-5 to Michael Russell on Wednesday at the Atlanta Open. It was only Fishs fourth match since the U.S. Open in September when he withdrew before a fourth-round match because of an irregular heartbeat. Ranked No. 13 in the world last July, the sixth-seeded Fish -- the Atlanta Open winner in 2010 and 11 - fell to 1-3 this season. Hes ranked No. 63 after his first match since losing in a lower-level ATP Challenger tournament in April. "He played really well," said the 35-year-old Russell, ranked 85th. "He was coming up with 130 mph serves. I couldnt tell. Usually when somebody takes four months off, theyre a little rusty. But it was really good tennis." Russell took advantage of a rain delay -- the match began on Tuesday -- to make raccket adjustments. Swingman Kirk Hinrich Jersey. "It definitely helped me a little bit," Russell said about the delay. "I was able to change my string tension. I was pleased with the rain delay." Seventh-seeded Lleyton Hewitt advanced to the quarterfinals with a deceivingly difficult 7-6 (3), 6-4 win over wild-card entry Rhyne Williams. The 32-year-old Hewitt, 64th in the world, trailed 2-6 in the tiebreaker before winning six straight points, and only broke serve in the second set in the deciding game. While Hewitt and Russell stood up for the old guard, 19-year-old Chrisitian Harrison won his first match in an ATP main draw. A wild-card entry, the 373rd-ranked Harrison beat Alejandro Falla 6-1, 6-7 (7), 6-2. Harrison will play top-seeded John Isner in the second round. Isner and second-seeded Kevin Anderson have yet to play. Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '
