ARLINGTON (AP) — Mike Napoli hit two home runs, connecting along with Rougned Odor and Shin-Soo Choo in the sixth inning to power the Texas Rangers past the Seattle Mariners 10-4 on Saturday.
Napoli’s two-run drive capped a five-run first that sent the Rangers to their seventh win in eight games. Seattle lost its third in a row.
Martin Perez (3-6) won for the first time since May 18. He left with a 5-4 lead with one out in the sixth after giving up a 463-foot, three-run homer to straightaway center by Mike Zunino.
Yovani Gallardo (3-7) retired the first two batters in the opening inning before giving up five straight hits.
Odor hit a leadoff homer in the sixth off Dan Altavilla. Napoli and Choo later tagged the reliever for two-run drives.
