Mariners Vs. Rangers Final Score: Seattle Absolutely Annihilates Texas, 21-8

On Wednesday, the Seattle Mariners secured their second series win over the first-place Texas Rangers in as many weeks. Not only that, but for the second straight game, the normally light-hitting Mariners blew out their opponents in spectacular fashion. On Wednesday, the Mariners had a pair of eight-run innings en route to a jaw-dropping 21-8 win.

The Mariners jumped ahead 8-0 in the top of the second inning as they batted around and put up a true crooked number. The runs came on a Miguel Olivo RBI single, a three-run Dustin Ackley home run, a Kyle Seager RBI single and a two-run homer by Jesus Montero -- who had led off the inning with a single.

In the top of the third, the Mariners staked themselves to another eight-run inning and a 16-0 lead when Michael Saunders scored on a throwing error, Montero doubled in two runs, Justin Smoak hit a three-run homer, Saunders hit an RBI double and Brendan Ryan had an RBI groundout.

In the top of the fourth, Alex Liddi hit a sacrifice fly and the Mariners were ahead 17-0. The Rangers finally got on the board in the bottom of the sixth with a five-run inning of their own. Texas added another pair of runs in the bottom of the seventh to cut the lead to 17-7, but the Mariners had one more big inning in them.

In the top of the eighth, Seager doubled home Ackley and Smoak hit another three-run blast to make it 21-7. Smoak had 6 RBI in his first career multi-homer game.

The Rangers managed a Michael Young RBI single in the bottom of the ninth, but Hisashi Iwakuma completed his three-inning save with three quick outs following the final Rangers run score.

Every Mariners starter had at least one hit and one run scored. Chone Figgins was the only Seattle starter to not pick up an RBI.

No matter what happens for the rest of the season, Mariners fans will be able to look back on this game and laugh. At length.

Mariners Vs. Rangers Final Score: Everything Goes Right In 10-3 Win

On Tuesday, the Seattle Mariners had possibly their best game of the season. All the breaks went their way and they exploded for 10 runs and 14 hits in a 10-3 victory. What made it even better was that it came against first-place division rivals the Texas Rangers.

Texas opened the scoring in the bottom of the first, on an RBI groundout from Josh Hamilton. The Mariners answered back with a two-run John Jaso homer in the top of the second to take a 2-1 lead. They stretched that lead to 4-1 in the top of the fifth inning when two runs scored on a bases-loaded, two-out throwing error by Adrian Beltre.

In the bottom of the sixth, the Rangers cut the Seattle lead to 4-3 with Hamilton's 21st home run of the season, but those three Hamilton RBI would be the only offensive output Texas would manage.

The top of the eighth was the true nightmare inning for Texas, as the Mariners would go on a romp, scoring on a Jaso RBI single, a fielding error by Elvis Andrus, RBI singles by Dustin Ackley and Mike Carp, a sacrifice fly by Ichiro Suzuki and a two-out wild pitch. The Mariners bullpen did not allow a run the rest of the way.

Seattle starter Jason Vargas picked up his sixth win of the year by going 6.2 innings and allowing three runs on five hits and three walks.

The Mariners will go for the series win on Wednesday.

Mariners Vs. Rangers Final Score: Homers Doom Seattle In 4-2 Loss

The Seattle Mariners visited the Texas Rangers in Arlington on Monday to kick off the first game of a three-game series. In the opener, things didn't quite go Seattle's way, as they ended up on the wrong end of a 4-2 loss.

The Mariners opened the scoring in the top of the first inning (as they do) on a two-out RBI single by Jesus Montero. The Rangers tied things up with a Nelson Cruz home run in the bottom of the second, but the deciding blow came in the sixth inning.

Steve Delabar came into the game in relief of starter Kevin Millwood. He gave up a walk and a single to start the inning. After striking out Cruz, he gave up a big three-run homer to Mike Napoli that sealed the win for the Rangers. Although the Mariners were able to pick up another run in the top of the eighth on an RBI triple by Brendan Ryan, that was as close as they got. In fact, Ryan was thrown out at home attempting to stretch the hit into an inside-the-park home run. Had he remained at third, he may have been able to score on either of the two groundouts that followed, or perhaps could have extended a longer Mariners rally.

Millwood was solid, allowing just four hits and two walks in five innings of work. Delabar took the loss. The Mariners managed seven hits in the game, but did not draw a single walk.
