COVID-hit Mariners beat reeling Rangers 4-2 behind Gilbert

Rangers 2-0 win Mariners


SEATTLE (AP) — Logan Gilbert pitched 6 2/3 scoreless innings and Adam Frazier doubled twice on a three-hit night to lead the COVID-hit Seattle Mariners over Texas 4-2 and send the Rangers to their worst start since 1987. Seattle was missing manager Scott Servais, third-base coach Manny Acta and assistant coach Andy Bissell along with right fielder Mitch Haniger, catcher Luis Torrens and reliever Paul Sewald due to positive COVID-19 tests. First base coach Kristopher Negrón served as acting manager. The Rangers, who turned a triple play in the first, are off to a 2-9 start that is their worst since 1987.
