ARLINGTON, Texas -- Kyle Seager had three hits, including a two-run single that sparked a four-run third inning, and the Seattle Mariners beat the Texas Rangers 6-2 on Tuesday night.

Seager, a career .256 hitter in four seasons, is hitting .329 against the Rangers.

Robinson Cano, Dustin Ackley and recent call-up Nick Franklin added two hits each as the Mariners, last in the American League in hitting, had every member of the batting order reach base during the first four innings,

That backed the pitching of right-hander Hisashi Iwakuma (3-0), who allowed both runs and six hits through eight innings. Iwakuma had a streak of 17 consecutive scoreless innings end with a home run by Adrian Beltre leading off the second inning that made it 1-0.
