Recap: Seattle vs. Texas

Seattle, WA (SportsNetwork.com) - Miles Mikolas pitched eight strong frames to help the Texas Rangers to a 2-0 win over the Seattle Mariners in the opener of a three-game set.

Mikolas (2-5) gave up just three hits and a walk while striking out five to win for the first time in six starts, as he had lost his last three decisions.

"He was very good, executed all his pitches and stayed focused," said Texas manager Ron Washington about Mikolas. "He was right where he wanted to be and used all his pitches extremely well."

J.P. Arencibia and Rougned Odor drove in a run each in the win.

Roenis Elias (9-11) allowed just one run on three hits with four walks and six strikeouts over five innings to take the loss for the Mariners, who were coming off a three-game sweep of Boston.

Logan Morrison had two of the four hits for Seattle, which has a half-game lead over idle Detroit for the second wild card spot in the American League.

"This is baseball and if you don't get hits you're not going to win," said Seattle manager Lloyd McClendon. "Tonight Texas played a better ball game then we did and that's why they won the game."

Texas got on the board in the fourth as Elvis Andrus led off with a single, moved to second on a walk by Adrian Beltre, then came in on Arencibia's single to left for a 1-0 lead.

In the seventh, the Rangers added a run when Leonys Martin singled to start, moved to third on a bunt from Tomas Telis and scored on Odor's groundout for a 2-0 advantage.

Mikolas, meanwhile, got into just one minor jam in the contest, as the Mariners had men on first and second in the second. It was with two outs, though, and he got Endy Chavez to ground out and end the frame.

From there he faced the minimum the rest of the game as he got double plays in the fourth and eighth innings.

Neftali Feliz pitched around a one-out single in the ninth to notch his seventh save on the season.
