Horacio Ramirez allowed just four hits in 5 2/3 innings, but one was a three-run homer. Ramirez and Seattle were hurt by unusually poor defense by Adrian Beltre, whose two errors led to four unearned runs. Beltre was one of four Mariners with two hits.
Ian Kinsler hit a game-tying three-run homer in the fifth inning, which was kept alive after an Adrian Beltre error. The Rangers capitalized again in the seventh, as Travis Metcalf singled and scored all the way from first on a Kinsler single and another Beltre error.
