ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Prince Fielder and Kevin Kouzmanoff hit back-to-back homers, Robbie Ross limited Seattle to five singles in seven-plus innings and the Texas Rangers beat the Mariners 5-0 Tuesday night.

Fielder ended a 13-game homerless streak to start the season with his new team, hitting a line drive to right-center off former Texas first-round pick Blake Beavan (0-1) leading off the second inning. Two pitches later, Kouzmanoff went deep to left.

Kouzmanoff also had two doubles, the second one driving in two runs to put the Rangers up 4-0 in the eighth. Ross (1-0), a former reliever, got his first win as a starter in his third try as the Rangers recorded their third straight win by shutout and fourth in seven victories overall.

Fielder's homer drought was the second-longest of his career to start the season. He twice went 14 games before his first long ball — in 2008 and 2010.

ATHLETICS 10, ANGELS 9, 11 INNINGS

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Josh Donaldson drove in Jed Lowrie with an 11th-inning double, and Oakland overcame Mike Trout's tying homer in the ninth to beat Los Angeles.

Lowrie led off the 11th with a single against Yoslan Herrera (0-1), the Angels' seventh pitcher. Donaldson hit a sharp grounder inside third base for the AL-leading A's, who have won four straight and eight of nine.

Jim Johnson (2-2) pitched two innings for Oakland, getting Howie Kendrick on a groundout with Trout and Albert Pujols in scoring position to end it.

Trout hit a two-run shot in the ninth for the Angels, who have lost three of four.

Both teams erased late three-run deficits during two dismal bullpen performances. The Angels trailed 9-6 in the eighth after leading 6-3 heading to the seventh.

WHITE SOX 2, RED SOX 1

CHICAGO (AP) — Alexei Ramirez scored the winning run in the ninth inning on a two-out throwing error by Xander Bogaerts, and Chicago edged Boston on a frigid night.
