A pair of errors led to an early four-run hole, and the Rangers were unable to climb out. Brad Wilkerson and Sammy Sosa each went deep. Sosa's was a two-run shot that followed Mark Teixeira's first extra-base hit of the season. Vicente Padilla went six innings, allowing six runs on six hits.
The Mariners built a 4-0 lead behind a strong Miguel Batista and added insurance runs on a pair of two-run homers from Adrian Beltre and Jose Guillen. Batista yielded a pair of late homers, finishing having allowed three runs on five hits in 6 2/3 innings for his first Seattle win.
