PEORIA, Ariz. – The Seattle Mariners rode a pair of two-run homers from the heart of their line-up to a 4-3 win over the Texas Rangers in front of a crowd of 8,478 fans at Peoria Stadium in Cactus League play on Sunday.

Kendrys Morales homered for the second straight day, hitting a two-out, two-strike, two-run homer to right field in the bottom of the eighth to erase a 3-2 deficit and lift Seattle to the win.

Raul Ibanez had slugged a two-run homer to right field (his third of the spring) to give Seattle a 2-1 lead in the fourth.

Blake Beavan worked six innings allowing one run on three hits. Beavan, who retired the first 10 batters he faced, threw just 61 pitches. Carter Capps worked a 1-2-3 seventh inning, and Danny Farquhar earned the save with a perfect ninth. Kameron Loe (1-0) allowed two runs in his inning of work.

Brad Miller tripled in his only at-bat, working back from a 1-2 count with two outs to keep the inning alive for Morales in the eighth. Jason Bay was two-for-four with a double and a stolen base.

Felix Hernandez worked in a minor league game today. He pitched four innings, allowing three hits, one earned run and striking out six versus the Cincinnati Reds high-A team.

Tomorrow, Seattle travels to Phoenix Municipal Stadium to take on the Oakland Athletics. The game will not be broadcast, but can be followed on www.mariners.com. Right-hander Hisashi Iwakuma is scheduled to start for Seattle vs. A's right-hander A.J. Griffin.
