The Mariners lead the majors in homers this spring. They have connected for 18 in eight games.
Texas shortstop Elvis Andrus doubled and walked in his return to the lineup after a bizarre setback. He was scratched the previous day with what the team called "sensitivity in his left arm" -- apparently caused by an elaborate tattoo.
Andrus will now join Team Venezuela for the World Baseball Classic.
Mitch Moreland hit a two-run homer for Texas.
