It’s not often the Seattle Mariners rally against a team in playoff contention, but that’s what they did on Sunday. Kyle Seager hit a go-ahead double in the top of the ninth to lift the Seattle Mariners to a 4-3 victory over the Texas Rangers in the rubber match of a three-game series.
Tied at 3-3 entering the ninth and with Joe Nathan (3-2) pitching for Texas, Endy Chavez singled to center to start the inning. Humberto Quintero bunted to advance the runner, and Nick Franklin drew a two-out walk. Seager then ripped an RBI double to right to give his team the lead.
Danny Farquhar pitched a perfect ninth to earn his seventh save of the season. Mariners starter Erasmo Ramirez gave one earned run over 7 innings and remains unbeaten in six starts this season. Yoervis Medina picked up the win for Seattle.
