2 Runs in 8th, Gives Rangers 3-1 Win Over M's

SEATTLE (AP) - Elvis Andrus and Adrian Beltre each hit two-out, RBI singles in the eighth inning to lift the Texas Rangers to a 3-1 win against the Seattle Mariners on Saturday night.

Joe Ortiz (2-0) pitched two innings for his second win in three days. Joe Nathan pitched a perfect ninth for his fourth save in four chances.

Jason Bay had two hits and an RBI for the Mariners, who have lost four of five.

Mariners starter Joe Saunders remained unbeaten at Safeco Field with a no-decision despite a strong performance, allowing an unearned run on three hits in seven innings.

Carter Capps (0-1) walked Craig Gentry to lead off the eighth and then got two outs before Andrus broke the 1-all tie with his hit to right. Andrus then stole second and kept going to third when Capps' pitch went to the backstop, and scored on Beltre's single.
