Garcia HR, Barlow bounces back for Texas in 3-2 win over M’s

Rangers 2-0 win Mariners


ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Adolis Garcia hit a three-run homer and closer Joe Barlow quickly rebounded as the Texas Rangers beat the Seattle Mariners 3-2. The Rangers didn’t have a base runner against Marco Gonzales until Marcus Semien led off the fourth with a single. On the first pitch after Mitch Garver’s one-out walk, Garcia went deep. Glenn Otto allowed only two hits over five innings to win his third start in a row, even with five walks and a hit batter. Barlow worked a perfect ninth for the save after giving up a homer in the ninth inning to lose the series opener.
