Michael Saunders drew a two-out walk from Robbie Ross (4-2) and Seager followed by slamming a 1-1 pitch over the right-field fence. Jason Bay also went deep for the Mariners.
Charlie Furbush (2-4) pitched 1 2/3 hitless innings and Tom Wilhelmsen worked a perfect 10th for this 17th save in 22 opportunities. The save was Wilhelmsen’s first since June 10.
Bay led off the game with his 11th homer, but Texas recovered to take a 2-1 lead when David Murphy and Ian Kinsler hit fifth-inning shots off Felix Hernandez. The Mariners tied the contest in the sixth,when Mike Zunino hit a bases-loaded infield single off the glove of Rangers third baseman Adrian Beltre.
