Red Hot Seager Powers Mariners Past Ranger
Kyle Seager hit a pair of home runs, including a three-run shot in the eighth, to lead the Seattle Mariners to a 6-5 win against the Texas Rangers on Sunday.
Seager has five home runs in four games, a power surge that started with a two-homer game against the Astros on Wednesday. He's also had at least two hits in all four games, tying a career-best streak.
Seager led off the seventh inning with his first home run and then gave Seattle the lead with his two-out bomb down the right field line in the eighth off Alexi Ogando. The comeback victory also gave the Mariners their first home series win against Texas since September 2012.
Danny Farquhar pitched the eighth to earn the win and Fernando Rodney closed out the ninth for his fifth save.
The Mariners are off tonight but they will open up a three-game series in New York tomorrow against the Yankees.
