Hicks homers twice, Rangers snap Seattle skid with 7-3 win

Rangers 2-0 win Mariners

By TIM BOOTH

SEATTLE (AP) — John Hicks homered in his first two at-bats, Eli White added a three-run shot and the Texas Rangers snapped a 13-game losing streak in Seattle with a 7-3 win over the Mariners. Texas won in Seattle for the first time since July 23, 2019, and ended the longest active losing streak in an opponents’ park in the majors. Hicks was the catalyst with his second career multi-homer game. A former prospect in the Mariners organization, he led off the third and fourth innings with home runs as part of a miserable return to the mound for Seattle starter Marco Gonzales. Jordan Lyles threw six strong innings for Texas to earn the win.
