Mariners split series, top Rangers 4-3

SEATTLE (AP) - Dustin Ackley snapped a sixth-inning tie with his first RBI of the season, rookie Brandon Maurer rebounded from a horrible start to throw six strong innings for his first career victory and the Seattle Mariners beat the Texas Rangers 4-3 on Sunday.

Raul Ibanez added a solo homer as Seattle salvaged a split of the 4-game series thanks largely to Maurer (1-2) finally showing the promise he displayed in spring training that earned him a spot in the rotation.

In his first home start last Tuesday against Houston, Maurer recorded just two outs and gave up six earned runs. He was far better on Sunday, allowing five hits and only two runs before turning it over to the bullpen. Tom Wilhelmsen pitched the ninth for his fifth save.
