Beltre's 2-Run Single Helps Rangers Beat Mariners 3-0

sports33SEATTLE (AP) - Adrian Beltre lined a two-run, bases-loaded single in the sixth inning and Yovani Gallardo pitched into the sixth as the Texas Rangers beat the Seattle Mariners 3-0 Monday.

Texas picked up a game on AL West-leading Houston, which lost to Oakland 10-9. The Astros lead the Rangers by 2 games.

The Rangers' go-ahead rally began with Delino DeShields drawing a one-out walk from Roenis Elias (4-8). Shin-Soo Choo followed with a single to center, and Elias then hit Prince Fielder with a pitch, loading the bases.

Beltre worked a full count, then punched a fastball to right, scoring DeShields and Choo.

Mariners shortstop Ketel Marte prevented further damage with a nifty grab of a one-hop grounder by Elvis Andrus that he turned into a double play.

Gallardo (12-9) picked up the victory, working 5 1-3 innings. He allowed five hits, struck out four and walked two.

Shawn O'Malley singled and walked Sunday and had six hits in his first seven major league at-bats as the Mariners swept a series in Oakland for the first time in six years.

Billy Butler hit a home run for the Athletics, who lost their fifth straight. The long ball gives the A's a 12-game streak with at least one homer, currently the longest active streak as Seattle had its 13-game run snapped.

Iwakuma (7-3) allowed one run on five hits in his 6 1-3 innings. He walked one and struck out three.

Sean Nolin (0-1) became the 28th pitcher used by the A's, a franchise record.

Cowboys Get Former Aggies RB Michael In Trade From Seattle

IRVING, Texas (AP) - The Dallas Cowboys have acquired running back Christine Michael in a trade from Seattle.

Michael was sent to the Cowboys on Sunday for a conditional 2016 draft pick.

Defensive end Lavar Edwards was waived by Dallas to make room on the 53-man roster.

Michael was a second-round pick out of Texas A&M in the 2013 draft. He ran for 254 yards over 14 games the past two seasons with the Seahawks after running for 2,791 yards and 34 touchdowns in four seasons for the Aggies.

After losing NFL rushing leader DeMarco Murray in free agency during the offseason, the Cowboys have multiple options at running back this season. Michael joins Joseph Randle, Darren McFadden and Lance Dunbar in Dallas.
