Mariners Vs. Rangers Final Score: Seattle Scores Run In 2-1 Loss

The Seattle Mariners had a chance to capture their three-game series against the Texas Rangers on Sunday, but they came up short. At the end of a pitchers' duel between Blake Beavan and Matt Harrison, the M's ended up taking the 2-1 loss.

Adrian Beltre blasted his 33rd home run of the season in the bottom of the fourth inning to snap the scoreless tie and get the Rangers on the board first. Mitch Moreland hit an RBI double in the bottom of the fifth to push the Texas lead to 2-0.

Justin Smoak led off the eighth inning with his 16th home run of the season -- and second of the series -- but the Mariners were unable to get any more runs across as they dropped the game and the series.

Beavan fell to 9-10 after allowing two runs on seven hits and one walk across seven innings of work. Harrison was just that much better, going 8.2 innings and allowing one run on six hits and a walk. Harrison improves his record to 17-9 with the win.

Mariners Vs. Rangers: Beavan, Seattle Look To Add Pressure To Texas's Division Lead

With their lead on the American League West slimmed to just two games with less than 20 games to go in the season, the Texas Rangers battle the Seattle Mariners in the rubber game of their three-game series on Sunday at 12:05 p.m. PT.

The Mariners send Blake Beavan to the mound. Beavan is making his third career start, the last of which came on May 30, when he surrendered five runs and eight hits in six innings.

The Mariners grabbed an 8-6 victory over the Rangers on Saturday night, using a three-hit, three-RBI performance from first baseman Justin Smoak and three RBIs from Michael Saunders to out-slug the Rangers' offensive powerhouse lineup.

The Rangers will counter on Sunday with starter Matt Harrison, who could become the Rangers' first 17-game winner since Scott Feldman had that many in 2009. Harrison is 3-2 in his last five starts, with his most recent outing against the Cleveland Indians resulting in a win.

The Seattle Mariners picked up a big win on Saturday night to even up their three-game series with the Texas Rangers. The Mariners blew a big early lead but came back in the late innings for an 8-6 win.

The M's then jumped out to a huge 6-0 lead in the third inning on a Dustin Ackley homer, a Saunders RBI triple and RBI singles by Justin Smoak and Eric Thames. The Rangers finally got on the board in the bottom of the third on a Nelson Cruz sacrifice fly.

The Rangers cut the lead to 6-4 in the bottom of the sixth on a Mike Napoli home run, then tied things up in the seventh on an RBI single from Cruz and an RBI groundout from David Murphy.

In the top of the eighth, Smoak led off with his 15th homer of the year to give the Mariners back the lead and added a big insurance run in the ninth with another RBI single. Smoak was 3-for-4 with three RBI in the game.

Mariners Vs. Rangers Preview: Seattle Looks For Rebound In Game 2

The Seattle Mariners take on the Texas Rangers in the second of three games at Rangers Ballpark, looking to rebound from Friday night's 9-3 loss. Seattle got a strong start from Hisashi Iwakuma in Game 1, but the bullpen gave up seven runs in the eighth to give the game to Texas.

Justin Vargas (14-10, 3.85 ERA) will look to set the team up for a different result in Game 2. He's struggled this year on the road, giving up 25 of his 32 home runs on the road, and his 4.92 away game ERA is far worse than his home mark of 2.62. Scott Feldman (6-11, 4.97 ERA) will be on the hill for Texas. He's 0-5 with a 5.97 ERA in his last six games.

Mariners Vs. Rangers Final Score: Seattle Drops Opener, 9-3

The Seattle Mariners were hoping to make a statement in Friday night's opener against the Texas Rangers, but were doomed by a huge inning in a 9-3 loss.

The Rangers got things going right away in the bottom of the first inning, as Ian Kinsler hit a ball that was reviewed and ruled to be a home run. Texas made it 2-0 in the third inning when Josh Hamilton belted his 42nd home run of the season.

Jesus Montero hit a sacrifice fly in the top of the fourth to cut the Rangers lead in half, but the close game evaporated in the eighth inning. Hamilton hit an RBI double and scored on a throwing error by Dustin Ackley, pushing the score to 4-1. Geovany Soto hit a two-run double to make it 6-1 and Elvis Andrus hit a bases-clearing three-run triple to cap off the seven-run eighth inning for the Rangers.

Michael Saunders led off the top of the ninth inning with his 15th home run of the year and Montero hit an RBI single, but the damage had already been done.

Seattle starter Hisashi Iwakuma went 5.1 innings and allowed just two runs on seven hits and a walk, but the Mariners bullpen proved extremely fallible in that crucial eighth inning.
