ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) Adrian Beltre's excitement over a three-run homer, season-high five RBIs and Texas' 8-3 victory over the Seattle Mariners in a rain-shortened game Friday night was muted hours after the Rangers fired manager Jeff Banister.
"Weird day. Lot of stuff going on. Lot of rain," said Beltre, who passed Stan Musial and Willie Stargell with his 476th career home run and passed Reggie Jackson and Jim Thome in career RBIs with 1,703. "But we survived this day."
The game was halted with two outs in the top of the seventh inning and called after a rain delay of 1:09.
