Recap: Seattle vs. Texas

Seattle, WA (Sports Network) - Jason Bay drove in the game-winning run in the 13th inning as the Seattle Mariners snapped an eight-game losing streak with a 4-3 win over the Texas Rangers.

With two outs and a runner on third, Bay delivered a single to left off Ross Wolf to score Kendrys Morales, who knocked a double off Michael Kirkman (0-1) earlier in the inning.

"It feels great. Not just for me but for everybody. That was a big sigh of relief for a lot of people," Bay said of the win.

Seattle starter Hisashi Iwakuma pitched eight innings, giving up two runs on five hits while fanning eight. Yoervis Medina (1-0) threw 1 2/3 scoreless innings to pick up the win.

Morales also had a two-run homer, while Raul Ibanez delivered a solo shot in the victory.

Jurickson Profar had a solo home run while Leonys Martin and A.J. Pierzynski drove in one run apiece for the Rangers. Starter Nick Tepesch allowed two runs on five hits and a walk over 5 2/3 innings.

"Any time you lose -- especially when you go to extra innings -- it's difficult but they took it from us," Rangers manager Ron Washington said.

Texas scored a run in each of the first two innings. Profar led off the game with a home run and Martin hit a sacrifice fly in the second that plated Nelson Cruz.

The Mariners finally scored in the sixth. Kyle Seager knocked a double to begin the frame, setting up Morales' two-run blast two batters later.

In the top of the 11th, Pierzynski smashed a pinch-hit RBI single off Oliver Perez, but Ibanez responded with a solo homer against Joe Nathan in the home half.

The Rangers had a chance to score in the top of the 13th. Elvis Andrus drew a leadoff walk, advanced to second on a grounder by Martin and stole third. Medina then intentionally walked Pierzynski, but was able to strike out Profar and get David Murphy to ground out to squander the opportunity.

Game Notes

Texas' Lance Berkman went 0-for-5 with four strikeouts ... Ibanez has seven home runs and 16 RBI over his last 11 games ... Morales went 3-for-6 and has a hit in 17-of-19 games in May ... Seattle's Tom Wilhelmsen was perfect in two innings of relief. Right-handed hitters are 0-for-33 against him this season ... The Mariners were 2-for-10 with runners in scoring position.

There was quite a bit of hitting on the field at Milan Puskar Stadium last weekend, but almost as much action took place in the streets just outside in the hours following West Virginia's upset of visiting Baylor.
