SEATTLE (AP) - Derek Holland was perfect through five innings and finished with a five-hitter as the Texas Rangers rolled 5-0 over the Seattle Mariners on Thursday night.
It was Holland's fourth career complete game - all shutouts - his third this season and second straight. He went the route in his previous outing July 7 against Oakland, a 6-0 decision.
Holland (8-4), who matched his career high for wins, retired the first 15 batters until walking Franklin Gutierrez on a 3-2 pitch to open the sixth. He then lost his no-hitter when the next batter, Chone Figgins slashed a single to right.
Mike Napoli, Josh Hamilton and Nelson Cruz each homered for Texas.
Jason Vargas (6-7) went six innings for Seattle, allowing five runs, a season-high 12 hits.
