Rodney can't close out Rangers in ninth

Felix Hernandez's troubles in Texas continued on Wednesday in a 3-2 loss to the Rangers, but the Mariners ace can't kick himself for this one.

Hernandez hasn't beaten his American League West rivals in their own park since his final start in 2010, but that string was all but snapped until the Rangers rallied for two unearned runs off closer Fernando Rodney in the bottom of the ninth at Globe Life Park.

Hernandez outdueled Rangers star Yu Darvish for seven innings, coming out of the game with a 2-0 lead and a runner on third with no outs in the eighth. The Mariners still led 2-1 after that runner scored, but the wheels came off in the ninth when Rodney gave up a two-out single and a walk and shortstop Brad Miller booted a routine grounder that would have ended things.
