SEATTLE (AP) - Jason Bay hit a two-out RBI single in the 13th inning, lifting the Seattle Mariners to a 4-3 victory over the Texas Rangers that snapped an eight-game skid.
Bay came through after he was robbed of a game-winning homer in the 11, when David Murphy leaped above the fence in left-center field to catch Bay's drive.
Raul Ibanez tied it at 3 earlier in the 11th with a home run. A.J. Pierzynski had given Texas a 3-2 lead in the top half with a pinch-hit RBI single off Oliver Perez.
Yoervis Medina (1-0) worked out a jam in the top of the 13th.
Kendrys Morales doubled and advanced to third on a groundout by Carlos Triunfel. Bay then singled off Rangers left-hander Michael Kirkman (0-1) to drive in Triunfel to earn the victory.
