Arlington, TX (Sports Network) - A.J. Pierzynski homered and drove in two runs and the Texas Rangers shut out the Seattle Mariners, 5-0, in an American League West matchup on Saturday.

Lance Berkman also drove in two runs while Daniel Murphy hit a solo shot for the Rangers, who have won the first two games of a three-game set.

Rangers starter Nick Tepesch allowed just two hits over 1 2/3 innings, but was taken out after getting hit on the right arm off a line drive by Jesus Montero. Derek Lowe (1-0) came in to replace him, pitching four perfect innings despite recording just one strikeout. Five pitchers were needed to get the shutout.

Rookie Brandon Maurer (1-3) allowed a pair of solo homer over 6 2/3 innings to absorb the loss.
