Mariners Shutout Texas, Win 1-0

Posted: Updated:

SEATTLE (AP) - Michael Saunders hit a solo home run in the second inning, former Texas prospect Blake Beavan threw seven shutout innings against his former club, and the Seattle Mariners kept the Rangers from extending their lead in the AL West with a 1-0 win on Saturday night.

Seattle took the first two games in the weekend series - handing the Rangers consecutive defeats for the first time in more than a month - and finally solved Matt Harrison's mastery of the Mariners.

 Harrison (17-10) had won nine straight times against Seattle, the second-longest streak in Rangers' history against one team, but was not able to extend the roll despite holding the Mariners to just the homer by Saunders.

 Texas remained four games ahead of Oakland in the division race after the A's lost at New York earlier in the day.
