The teams traded home runs for their first runs — Jason Bay for Seattle in the 1st and David Murphy for Texas in the 5th. Ian Kinsler also hit a home run for Texas in the 5th, but the one-run lead didn’t last long for the home team.

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Texas Rangers general manager Jon Daniels wouldn't get into specifics about anyone the Ranger may or may not have signed Tuesday on the first day of the international signing period.

July 2, 2008 was a day in Seattle sports history that crushed an entire fan base and city.
