Kouzmanoff, Rangers beat Mariners

Kouzmanoff, Rangers beat Mariners

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) Kevin Kouzmanoff delivered again, doubling twice and scoring two runs as the Texas Rangers beat Seattle Mariners 8-6 Thursday.

Texas lost the opener of the four-game series on Monday night, but won the last three.

The 32-year-old Kouzmanoff is hitting .414 since joining the Rangers on April 9 after starting third baseman Adrian Beltre strained his left quadriceps.

Kouzmanoff has hit in all eight games in which he has played, beginning with a pinch-hitting appearance followed by seven straight starts. Beltre was placed on the 15-day disabled list on Sunday.

Robinson Cano homered for the Mariners. He's in a 3-for-18 slump.
