Mariners can't hold on

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) _ Jarrod Saltalamachia broke a tie with a

two-run homer in the seventh, Scott Feldman bounced back from his

worst start of the season with seven strong innings, and the Texas

Rangers beat the Seattle Mariners 4-2 on Sunday night.

With the score tied, Nelson Cruz led off the seventh with a

single off reliever Jack White (2-2). One out later, Saltalamacchia

belted White's first pitch off the foul pole in right field for his

ninth homer of the season.

Feldman (10-4) gave up two runs and five hits with four

strikeouts and two walks, extending his career-best win total and

assuming the team lead in victories as the Rangers won for the 11th

time in 14 games.
