ARLINGTON, Texas, Aug. 24 (UPI) -- A three-run double by Ichiro Suzuki highlighted a seven-run sixth inning Thursday night that boosted the Seattle Mariners to a 9-4 victory over Texas.
Jose Vidro added a two-run homer, helping Seattle to its sixth win in seven games. The Mariners have a two-game lead over the New York Yankees in the American League wild-card race.
Starter Jeff Weaver (6-10) got the win by going six innings while giving up three runs on seven hits.
Texas returned home after its historic effort Wednesday night, in which the Rangers scored a modern record 30 runs against Baltimore.
But the Rangers were victimized by a big inning Thursday night as Kameron Loe (6-10) gave up seven runs on 10 hits in 5 2/3 innings. Only three of the runs were earned.
The seven-run inning also featured a homer from Jose Guillen and Vidro's two-run blast.
