    Logan Morrison had a tiebreaking, two-run double to back Felix Hernandez and lead the Seattle Mariners to a 5-2 victory over the Texas Rangers on Wednesday night.

    With the score tied 2-2 and the bases loaded in the fifth inning, Morrison hit a ground ball past first base against Texas starter Wandy Rodriguez (0-1). Morrison finished 4 for 5, including two hits against Rodriguez to improve to 7 for 14 in his career against the left-hander.

    Hernandez allowed five hits, two runs and one walk in 6 2-3 innings to improve to 4-0 for the first time since 2009.

    Fernando Rodney pitched a perfect ninth inning for his seventh save in eight opportunities. He saved all three games as the Mariners swept the series for their first three-game winning streak this season.

    Seattle's Nelson Cruz was 2 for 4, including his 10th home run to lead off the second inning.
