Robinson Cano had his first four-RBI game for Seattle as the wild card-contending Mariners jumped out to a big early lead on the way to a 10-2 victory over the Texas Rangers on Thursday night. Rookie left-hander Roenis Elias (10-12) allowed a run in five innings to become the fourth Seattle starter with at least 10 wins. Robbie Ross (2-6) gave up six runs and five hits in 1 2-3 innings. The lefty was the first of six Texas pitchers, with two more making big league debuts to increase the Rangers' major league record totals to 40 pitchers used and 63 players overall this season. While long a forgone conclusion, the Rangers (53-87) became the first team in the majors eliminated from playoff contention after their sixth loss in a row. They went to their second consecutive World Series only three years ago. ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) – September 5, 2014
