ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Derek Lowe pitched four hitless innings in relief of injured starter Nick Tepesch, A.J. Pierzynski and David Murphy each hit solo homers and the Texas Rangers beat the Seattle Mariners 5-0 Saturday night.
 
Lowe (1-0) came out of the bullpen in the second inning after Tepesch was hit just above the right wrist by a line drive, sustaining a bruise. The 39-year-old right-hander allowed only one Seattle batter to reach when he hit Kendrys Morales with a pitch leading off the third.
 
Tepesch left with two outs in the second inning when Jesus Montero's liner caromed off the right-hander's wrist and into shallow right field.
 
The 24-year-old Tepesch, who appeared to be bleeding just above his wrist, began immediately shaking his arm after he was struck. He threw a couple of warm-up pitches, but the Rangers opted to bring reliever Lowe into the game.
