Rangers Vs. Mariners, Final Score: Joe Nathan Can't Hold Texas Lead In 4-3 Loss

Colby Lewis' stellar 6 and 2/3 innings of work were erased by a second consecutive blown save for Joe Nathan, who gave up three runs in the top of the ninth as the Rangers fell to Seattle 4-3.

Texas would try to rally in the bottom of the ninth, putting a runner in scoring position on second base with one out, but neither Ian Kinsler nor Elvis Andrus could drive in the tying run - something both did in the seventh inning, when they hit back-to-back solo home runs to build the Texas lead.

Despite Nathan's struggles, Lewis' shutout work through six innings brings the Rangers rotation ERA to to 1.92 in five quality starts as the starting pitchers continue to impress.
