Rangers 12, Mariners 4

Rangers 12, Mariners 4

SEATTLE — Rougned Odor hit a third-inning grand slam to back Colby Lewis, and the last-place Rangers took two of three from the Mariners. Erasmo Ramirez, recalled from Triple-A Tacoma for the start, allowed 10 runs in three-plus innings. Seattle, which went in a half-game ahead of the Tigers for the second AL wild-card spot, had been the only big-league team not to allow 10 or more runs in a game this season. Lewis pitched his second complete game of the season for Texas, which won a series for the third time since the All-Star break.
