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.

The NHL eliminated 16 more days from the regular-season schedule Monday, Dec. 10, 2012, and if a deal with the players' association isn't reached soon the whole season could be lost. The league wiped out all games through Dec. 30 in its latest round of cancellations. Negotiations between the league and the players' association broke off last week, but NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly said Sunday the sides are trying to restart talks this week.
