Fister pitches Mariners to 2-1 win over Rangers

Doug Fister tossed seven impressive innings,
outpitching Tommy Hunter to help the Seattle Mariners beat the AL
West-leading Texas Rangers 2-1 on Sunday.
Ryan Langerhans hit a leadoff triple in the seventh and scored
on a single by Josh Wilson, giving Seattle the lead and chasing
Hunter (12-4).
Texas' magic number remained six for clinching its first
division title since 1999. The Rangers have a nine-game lead over
Oakland, which beat Minnesota 6-2.
Langerhans went 2 for 3 and drew a 12-pitch walk from Hunter in
his first start in a week.
Fister (6-12) allowed one run and nine hits. David Aardsma
issued a leadoff walk to pinch-hitter Chris Davis in the ninth but
managed to hold on for his 31st save.
