Jason Bay, Michael Morse, Michael Saunders and Carlos Peguero homered Friday and the Seattle Mariners beat the Texas Rangers 8-6 in Peoria, Ariz.
The Mariners lead the majors in homers this spring. They have connected for 18 in eight games.

Former Spokane Indians player Mitch Moreland hit a two-run homer for Texas.
