ARLINGTON, Texas -  Mitch Moreland hit a tiebreaking double off Cy Young winner Felix Hernandez and the Texas Rangers remained unbeaten, defeating the Seattle Mariners 7-3 Wednesday.

The AL champion Rangers are 6-0 for the first time since 1996, when they set a team record by winning their first seven games. Texas has a day off Thursday before starting its first road trip of the season Friday in Baltimore.

Moreland's go-ahead hit in the seventh inning made a winner of C.J. Wilson (1-0).

Hernandez (1-1) allowed four runs, two of them unearned, in seven innings. A pair of errors by newly converted second baseman Jack Wilson led to the Mariners' troubles.
