Mariners come through in extras, beat Rangers
Kyle Seager hit a two-run homer in the 10th inning, and the Seattle Mariners won consecutive games in Texas for the first time in more than a year with a 4-2 victory over the Rangers on Wednesday night.
Charlie Furbush (2-4) pitched 1 2-3 scoreless innings for the win, and Tom Wilhelmsen was perfect in the 10th for his 17th save. Felix Hernandez started the game and ended up with a no-decision.
The Mariners will go for the sweep Thursday night.
The Mariners pulled even with a run in the sixth when Mike Zunino, who battled back from an 0-2 count for a tying infield single on a hopper that Adrian Beltre couldn’t handle behind the bag at third.
Raul Ibanez and Kendrys Morales opened the inning with singles, and Justin Smoak walked with one out. Dustin Ackley struck out on a full count before Zunino’s hit brought home Ibanez.
