Texas Rangers slugger Chris Davis hit a two-run homer in the bottom of the ninth inning today in a 3-2 victory over the Seattle Mariners.

The win in Arlington completed a three-game sweep.

The Rangers didn't score until Hank Blalock led off the ninth against closer Brandon Morrow (0-3) with a home run into the second deck of right-field stands.

After David Murphy's one-out double, Davis homered to center to give AL West-leading Texas its 10th win in 12 games.
Felix Hernandez pitched seven shutout innings for Seattle.

Matt Harrison (4-2) threw a five-hitter for his second complete game in a row, though his consecutive scoreless innings streak ended at 22.

Harrison struck out seven with no walks, but left the mound after his 102nd pitch trailing 2-0.

Michael Young had two hits for Texas -- singles in the first and sixth. After his first single, Josh Hamilton walked before Hernandez retired 15 of the next 16 batters.
