SURPRISE, Ariz. -- Jack Cust launched a solo homer in the 10th inning, his second of the game, capping a wild final three frames in the Mariners' 9-8 victory Saturday over the Rangers at Surprise Stadium.Trailing by four runs in the eighth, Adam Kennedy hit his second Cactus League homer for the Mariners off Darren O'Day -- a blast that was immediately followed by consecutive solo shots from Mike Wilson and Cust to knot the score at 6. Omar Quintanilla, a University of Texas product who was signed by the Rangers in the offseason, broke the deadlock with a two-run home run in the bottom of the eighth. The Mariners tied it when Luis Rodriguez scored on a wild pitch and Steven Baron singled home Michael Saunders in the ninth.
