ARLINGTON, Texas -- Josh Hamilton hit his team-leading 25th homer and collected his major league-best 104th RBI and the Texas Rangers beat the Seattle Mariners 4-3 on Wednesday night.
Michael Young had the go-ahead RBI with a pinch-hit sacrifice fly in the eighth inning and rookie Brandon Boggs homered for the Rangers, who have won seven of their last nine against the Mariners.
With the game tied at 3, Seattle reliever Arthur Rhodes (2-1) loaded the bases in the eighth with one-out walks to David Murphy, Hamilton and Marlon Byrd.
Young, out of the starting lineup because of a fractured right ring finger, lifted a fly ball to center, and Murphy scored the go-ahead run.
Eddie Guardado (2-2) pitched a perfect eighth for the win, and C.J. Wilson got three outs for his 24th save.
