Adolis García hit his team-leading ninth homer and drove in a career-high five runs, Dane Dunning struck out 10 in five innings and the Texas Rangers beat the Seattle Mariners 10-2 on Sunday. The past seven victories for the Rangers have come after falling behind, this time when they answered Seattle's two-run fifth for a 2-1 lead with six runs in the bottom of the inning.
The Texas Rangers are back at .500 for the first this season since April 7.
The teams played 10 times with the Mariners prevailing in eight games, including the last seven while outscoring Texas 60-32. Now, three games into the 19 scheduled meetings this season, the Mariners have learned that the success last year against Texas means nothing. With the sloppy and lackluster 10-2 defeat Sunday against the Rangers, including three errors and two unearned runs, Seattle lost two of three in the series and is now edging toward falling under .
