ARLINGTON, Texas -- Ian Kinsler hit a three-run homer and
the Texas Rangers took advantage of two Adrian Beltre errors to
beat the Seattle Mariners 5-3.
Kinsler's homer in the fifth tied the game at 3. It came one
pitch after Beltre's throwing error on a play that would have ended
the inning. Then in the seventh, Travis Metcalf singled and Kinsler
dribbled a grounder to Beltre at third. His throw ended up in right
field, allowing Metcalf to score with the go-ahead run.
Frank Francisco got the final out in the seventh to pick up the
win. He's 2-and-0.
C.J. Wilson pitched the ninth to earn his eighth save in nine
