ARLINGTON, Texas- Nelson Cruz hit his fifth career grand slam, one of
four home runs by the Texas Rangers in an 11-3 victory Sunday to complete a
three-game series sweep over the Seattle Mariners.
The slam by Cruz capped a five-run fifth that chased Aaron Harang (0-2).
Leonys Martin, Mitch Moreland and Adrian Beltre also homered for the
Rangers, whose 11 runs were a season high. Martin had a triple leading off the
fifth before scoring on Ian Kinsler's bloop single to right.
Justin Grimm (1-0), in his fourth major league start, struck out nine and
walked one over six innings.
Harang allowed eight runs over 4 2-3 innings, and now has a career ERA of
13.22 in four starts at Rangers Ballpark, where he hadn't pitched since 2003.
