Marlins on the mound: Starter Brian Moehler had a rocky outing, allowing four runs and eight hits over five innings.
Rangers on the mound: Starter Kameron Loe threw three scoreless innings before Jacobs homered leading off the fourth. Loe worked out of a two-out, bases-loaded jam in the third when he retired Miguel Cabrera on a popup. Fabio Castro, Erasmo Ramirez, Joaquin Benoit, Antonio Alfonseca and Francisco Cordero each pitched a scoreless inning from the fifth through the ninth in an effective night for the Rangers bullpen.
Up next: Texas hosts Florida on Saturday at 7:05 p.m. CT at Ameriquest Field.
Exhibition records: Marlins 19-8-3; Rangers 11-16-1.
