Mariners rally late with help of wild pitch, beat Texas 6-5

Abraham Toro hit on a wild pitch from Brock Burke in the 10th inning to end Seattle’s late-game rally and beat the Texas Rangers 6-5 on Sunday.

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Abraham Toro hit on a wild pitch from Brock Burke in the 10th inning to close Seattle’s late-game rally against the Texas Rangers 6-5 on Sunday.

Seattle scored three goals in game 9 against Matt Bush, who had his third missed save this season, to level the score at 5-5. Ty France started the goal with a one-out solo home run that landed in right field just inside the foul pole.

Diego Castillo (3-0) scored a scoreless ninth inning for Seattle, and in the 10th Toro, an automatic runner, advanced to third base after a Dylan Moore groundout and hit a four-ball against Burke’s Adam Frazier (3-0). 1).

Paul Sewald posted a scoreless 10th place finish and made his fourth save on six occasions this season.

Eugenio Suarez had four RBIs for the Mariners, who won the first two series of a nine-game streak. He had a solo home run in the fourth inning and a two-run double lined to right field in the ninth that tied the game.

“We had the right man at the right time,” Mariners manager Scott Servais said of Suarez, who has been on the ball for eight games. “He’s a veteran who has held those positions. Our boys were locked up late and it’s all thanks to them. It looked a bit bleak there.”

Texas’ five runs were on home runs — including the first major league home run for rookie Ezequiel Duran, who was recalled by Double-A Frisco before making his big league debut on Saturday. Duran also singled in the second inning for his first hit in the majors.

Adolis Garcia, Marcus Semien and Mitch Garver also scored for Rangers.

Texas manager Chris Woodward said usual closer Joe Barlow was unavailable after pitching Friday and Saturday.

Rangers had the potential second-place win run in the ninth with an out before Castillo defeated youngsters Duran and Steele Walker. Walker appeared in his first big league game after being promoted from Triple-A Round Rock, going 0 for 4.

“We’re talking about not catching up right now,” Woodward said. “It’s hard to say that to younger guys at the moment. They have to go through that.”

Rangers starter Martin Perez led the major leagues with a 1.42 ERA. He allowed two runs and increased his ERA to 1.56. Nestor Cortes of the New York Yankees took the lead (1.50).

Mariners rookie right-hander George Kirby allowed Garcia and Semien home runs under five hits in six innings.

It was Garcia’s fourth homer in his last eight games and Semien’s third in his last nine games after starting his first 43-game season in Texas without a homer.

Semien hit 45 home runs with Toronto last season, the most ever by a major league primary second baseman.

Suarez’s homer on the first pitch, which led the fourth inning, ended a 69 1/3 inning homerless streak for Perez that began after Gleyber Torres of the Yankees homed on his September 24 pitch for Boston .


Mariners CF Julio Rodriguez stole his 17th base leading the majors. … It was Semien’s 21st career home run against Seattle, his strongest against any opponent.
