Rangers drop opener
Photos
Mariners 7, Rangers 5
Scott Feldman struck out four and walked one in six innings. (AP)
Ian Kinsler went 2-for-3 with two walks and two doubles, but the Rangers' bats couldn't keep up with the Mariners. Hank Blalock was a late scratch with an upset stomach and Michael Young left the game after the second inning with a fractured finger.
