Throwing error hands Rangers 2-1 lead

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Seattle second baseman's Chone Figgins' errant throw to the plate trying to gun down Joaquin Arias sailed wide, allowing Arias and Taylor Teagarden, who came around from second base, to score.

Arias started the inning with his second base hit of the day, and Teagarden was hit by a pitch as he tried to square around to sacrifice bunt. Elvis Andrus got a beauty of a bunt down on the third-base side and was called out by hair, but he pushed runners to second and third with one out.

Borbon then grounded to second, igniting the throwing error for two runs, one earned.

Rangers 2, Mariners 1, as we move to the top of the sixth.
