Lefty starter Ryan Feierabend allowed two runs on six hits in five solid innings but suffered the loss in Game 1 of the doubleheader. The Mariners managed just one run, an RBI groundout by Adrian Beltre in the first inning.
John Rheinecker, pitching for a spot in the rotation, allowed one unearned run in seven innings to earn his first victory since 2006. The Rangers got an RBI triple from Marlon Byrd and an RBI single from Michael Young.
