Servais' 1st win for Mariners is chippy 10-2 rout of Texas

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Nelson Cruz hit one of four Seattle homers, fellow former Texas player Leonys Martin had a tiebreaking double and the Mariners bounced back from an opening day loss to beat the Rangers 10-2 Tuesday night.

Scott Servais, who spent six years in player development with Texas, got his first win as a manager while having a shouting match with reigning AL Manager of the Year Jeff Banister.

The pair exchanged words after former Seattle reliever Tom Wilhelmsen hit Chris Iannetta with a pitch. Wilhelmsen, who was ejected, had just given up the second of two homers along with two doubles without getting an out in a six-run Seattle eighth.

Nick Vincent (1-0) pitched a scoreless sixth inning.

Texas reliever Tony Barnette (0-1) lost in his major league debut at age 32 after six seasons in Japan.

This story has been corrected with Wilhelmsen's first name.
