SEATTLE (AP) — Leonys Martin hit a run-scoring single with two outs in the ninth to send the Texas Rangers past the Seattle 4-3 Saturday night, extending the Mariners’ losing streak to five games.

Luis Sardinas singled off Fernando Rodney (1-3) with one out in the ninth and moved to second on a groundout. Martin then hit a grounder just past the glove of a diving Kyle Seager at third base, scoring Sardinas without a play at the plate.

Neal Cotts (2-3) earned the win with 1 2-3 innings of relief, striking out four. Joakim Soria pitched a perfect ninth for his 15th save in 16 chances.

The Mariners tied the game in the seventh after a Rangers fielding gaffe loaded the bases. Robinson Cano followed with a soft line drive to right, scoring Willie Bloomquist to tie it 3-all.
