Cano homers twice, Mariners rally in 9th to win 9-5 at Texas

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Robinson Cano homered twice and drove in five runs, including a two-run homer that capped Seattle's five-run ninth, as the Mariners rallied for a 9-5 victory at the Texas Rangers on Wednesday in the finale of a three-game opening series.

Rangers closer Shawn Tolleson (0-1) allowed all five batters he faced to reach base and score.

Pinch-hitter Nori Aoki and No. 9 batter Ketel Marte started the ninth with consecutive singles, and Leonys Martin had a tying RBI double. Kyle Seager then had a two-run single before Cano's fourth homer chased Tolleson.

Cano has homered in all three games for Seattle and is the first Mariners player ever with four homers in the first three games of the season. He had 21 homers last season, and his fourth didn't come until his 71st game on June 26.

Joaquin Benoit (1-0) pitched a scoreless eighth.
