Paxton gave (4-1) gave up four hits and three walks while striking out four in 6 2/3 innings the Mariners, who have won four of their last five. Farquhar allowed just one walk in the final 2 1/3 frames.

"You could see him getting stronger as the game went on," said Seattle manager Lloyd McClendon about Paxton. "I wanted to give him as much work as I could because he's not all the way back, but he's getting there."

Nick Martinez (3-10) allowed all five runs on six hits with four walks in five innings for the Rangers, who had won their previous two coming in. Adrian Beltre had two hits in the loss.

"He just didn't command the baseball the way he had been earlier," Rangers manager Ron Washington said of Martinez.

In the fourth, the Mariners padded their advantage.
