Mariners get their Baek
Rangers can't keep pace
Kevin Millwood allowed only four hits in six innings, but one was a three-run homer in the fifth. The Rangers offense struggled for much of the night but picked up a pair of late runs when center fielder Ichiro Suzuki misplayed Carlos Lee's single in the ninth, but the rally was cut short.

M's homers cash in gem
Cha Seung Baek held the Rangers scoreless for seven innings, allowing only four singles and walking none while making a case for a shot at the 2007 rotation. Kenji Johjima started the offensive input with a three-run homer in the fifth, and Richie Sexson sealed the win with grand slam in the eighth.
