SEATTLE (AP) - Kyle Seager hit a pair of home runs, including a three-run shot in the eighth, to lead the Seattle Mariners to a 6-5 win against the Texas Rangers on Sunday.
    
Seager has five home runs in four games, a power surge that started with a two-homer game against the Astros on Wednesday. He's also had at least two hits in all four games, tying a career-best streak.
    
Seager led off the seventh inning with his first home run and then gave Seattle the lead with his two-out bomb down the right field line in the eighth off Alexi Ogando (1-2). The comeback victory also gave the Mariners their first home series win against Texas since September 2012.
    
Danny Farquhar (1-0) pitched the eighth to earn the win and Fernando Rodney closed out the ninth for his fifth save.
