Mariners Over Rangers 4-2

mariners 8SEATTLE (AP) - Streaking Nelson Cruz hit his 33rd home run and Felix Hernandez earned his 14th win Sunday, leading the Seattle Mariners over the Texas Rangers 4-2.

Cruz tied Angels star Mike Trout for most homers in the majors this season. Hernandez (14-6) is tied for the most wins in the big leagues.

Cruz extended his hitting streak to 19 games, tying a career best, with his solo shot off Colby Lewis (12-5) in the sixth. The Seattle slugger is batting .422 with 11 home runs, six doubles and 15 RBIs during the streak.

Tommy Johnson Jr. Wins At NHRA Northwest Nationals

KENT, Wash. (AP) - Tommy Johnson Jr. won in Funny Car on Sunday at the NHRA Northwest Nationals, spoiling teammate Jack Beckman's bid to sweep the NHRA Western Swing.

Johnson beat Beckman in the semifinals after Beckman's Dodge Charger R/T dropped a cylinder at the hit of the throttle, then topped Del Worsham in the final with a 4.073-second run at 308.00 mph.

Johnson raced to his second victory of the season and 10th in his Funny Car career. He also became the third driver to win in at Pacific Raceways in both Top Fuel and Funny Car.

"We've got the most consistent car," Johnson said. "The last seven races, including this one, we have been to four finals. We've got a really good car and team. We struggled early in the season with stupid stuff that bit us. Everybody has stepped up to the plate lately and it is showing."

J.R. Todd won in Top Fuel, and Chris McGaha topped the Pro Stock field.

Todd raced to his first victory of the season and eighth overall, beating Shawn Langdon with a 3.820 at 322.04. McGaha beat Jeg Coughlin with a 6.507 at 212.59 in a Chevy Camaro for his second straight win.

Dos Santos Has Debut Goal, Assist As Galaxy Beat Seattle 3-1

CARSON, Calif. (AP) - Giovani dos Santos had a goal and an assist in an impressive MLS debut, leading the LA Galaxy to a 3-1 victory over the Seattle Sounders on Sunday.

Dos Santos set up captain Robbie Keane's tiebreaking goal in the 47th minute before the Mexican playmaker scored his first goal in the 64th minute, taking a beautiful pass from Keane and burying his shot past Stefan Frei.

Dos Santos started up front alongside Keane and took corner kicks as the Galaxy (11-7-7) officially unveiled the newest acquisition in their star-studded lineup. Dos Santos even lived up to the standard set by Steven Gerrard, who also had a goal and an assist in his winning MLS debut last month.

The sellout crowd gave a standing ovation when dos Santos left in the 69th minute.

Seattle dropped to 10-12-2.
