SEATTLE, April 14 (UPI) -- Jesus Montero delivered a score-tying RBI and came around to score the decisive run on a Dustin Ackley single Sunday, boosting Seattle over Texas 4-3.

With Seattle trailing 3-2 in the sixth inning, Kyle Seager stroked a one-out double off Nick Tepesch (1-1).

Montero followed by blooping an 0-1 pitch into right field, sending Seager home with the equalizer.

Montero moved to second on a wild throw home by the Rangers' Nelson Cruz, then came home with the go-ahead run when the next batter, Ackley, grounded a ball up the middle for a single.

Rookie Brandon Maurer (1-2) recorded his first major league win, yielding three runs (two earned) on five hits over six innings. The right-hander walked one and struck out five.

Tom Wilhelmsen picked up his fifth save for the Mariners, who split a four-game series at Safeco Field.

Tepesch (1-1) ended up allowing four runs on nine hits over 5 2/3 innings for Texas.

Lance Berkman and Mitch Moreland each supplied an RBI for the Rangers.
