Ian Kinsler began the comeback with a two-run homer in the seventh and Yorvit Torrealba kept it going by delivering a game-tying RBI double in the eighth.

Then in the ninth, Kinsler drew a walk from Jeff Gray (0-1) and Endy Chavez singled before Hamilton blooped a hit into left-center field for the walk-off win.

Chavez socked hit a solo homer as the first-place Rangers improved to 10-2 against Seattle this season.
