Lopez makes 13th lucky
Rangers watch M's escape
Robinson Tejeda's run-scoring throwing error overshadowed yet another strong pitching performance. The righty allowed two runs in 6 2/3 innings and avoided the loss when Gary Matthews Jr. forced extra innings with a ninth-inning homer, but the Texas 'pen ran into trouble in the 13th.

Mariners roll in extras
Jarrod Washburn turned in six strong innings, but the Mariners needed 13 frames to pick up their fourth straight win. Seattle showed patience at the plate, drawing three walks in the final frame before Jose Lopez delivered a walk-off single. Six relievers scattered three hits over the last seven innings.
