American League Game Summary - Seattle at Texas



(Wednesday, July 3rd)

Final Score: Seattle 4, Texas 2 (10 innings)

Arlington, TX (Sports Network) - Kyle Seager's two-run home run in the 10th inning powered the Seattle Mariners past the Texas Rangers, 4-2, in the middle contest of a three-game series.

After recording the first two outs of the inning, Robbie Ross (4-2) walked Michael Saunders to set up the game-winning homer to right by Seager, who finished 3-for-5.

Jason Bay had a solo home run and Mike Zunino drove in a run for the Mariners, who go for the sweep on Thursday.

Charlie Furbush (2-4) threw 1 2/3 innings of no-hit ball to earn the win and Tom Wilhelmsen faced the minimum to collect his 17th save of the season.

"We didn't have any room for error with those guys coming out of the bullpen," said Seattle manager Eric Wedge. "So we needed them to pitch the way they pitched. They did a great job."

Ian Kinsler and Daniel Murphy each connected for homers for the Rangers, who have dropped three of their last four.

"Bottom line is, in the end they took advantage of the opportunities they had to win it," said Texas manager Ron Washington. "All you can do when you're facing good pitching is take advantage of the opportunities you have. We had it, we just didn't take advantage of it."

Mariners starter Felix Hernandez went seven solid innings, yielding two runs on seven hits with seven strikeouts for his third straight no-decision. Two runs of support are usually enough for Hernandez, who has a 99-25 record when Seattle puts two runs on the board for him.

Bay led off the game with a homer to left. The Rangers took the lead in the fifth thanks the homers from Murphy and Kinsler. Murphy tied the game with a blast to right-center field and two batters later, Kinsler delivered a shot to left. The Rangers went four straight games without a home run, the longest streak since June 10-14, 2011.

Raul Ibanez and Kendrys Morales each singled to start the sixth inning. After a fly out, Justin Smoak drew a walk to load the bases. Two batters later, Zunino delivered a two-out RBI single off third baseman Adrian Beltre to score Ibanez.
