ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Mike Zunino homered an inning before adding an RBI single in Seattle’s strange six-run outburst that included three Texas Rangers errors and a replay reversal that gave the Mariners a run in their 7-1 victory Monday night.

Roenis Elias (1-1) worked into the seventh inning with five strikeouts for his first major league victory in the left-hander’s third career start.

The Mariners went ahead to stay in the fifth on Zunino’s solo homer off Colby Lewis (0-1), who made his first big league start in 21 months after elbow and hip operations.

Seattle’s six-run sixth got started when Robinson Cano hit a leadoff single and scored on Michael Saunders’ triple to left-center — a ball that center fielder Leonys Martin bobbled without getting charged with an error. Kyle Seager followed with an RBI single that chased Lewis, and then things got interesting.
