Alexi Liddi's first career grand slam propelled the Mariners past the Rangers on Wednesday afternoon, as Seattle defeated Texas 5-3 in the rubber match of the three-game set.
Scott Feldman lasted just four and a third innings, and was responsible for surrendering all five of Seattle's runs. Though Feldman gave up just three hits, he walked five in the contest, and gave up the back-breaking grand slam to Liddi in the fifth inning.
Michael Saunders put Seattle on the board in the bottom of the second inning, as his sacrifice fly scored Kyle Seager.
Texas mounted a bit of a comeback in the eighth inning. Josh Hamilton, who went 2-4 on the day, hit a double to right field, scoring Ian Kinsler. Adrian Beltre followed that up with a two-run homer, making the score 5-3.
Unfortunately for the Rangers, the tying run would never come to the plate as they failed to record another hit or draw another walk.
Texas will return home and get ready to open up a three-game series against the Toronto Blue Jays on Friday night.
