Detroit's pitchers have given up 4.6 runs per game overall in 2018 as a unit.

The Tigers (17-22) took two of three from the Mariners (22-17), who they will play again in Seattle in four days.

The Tigers banged out ten hits and walked three times with Pete Kozma going 2-3 with a homer and two runs while JaCoby Jones and Niko Goodrum each had two hits and a run. The Tigers are putting up 4.42 runs per game while allowing 4.64 per contest. "Everyone knows what he means to this team, and he's down right now, but we have other guys who can step up". He also laced a single that moved the go-ahead run to third base in the ninth.

Cano tried to get out of the way of an inside 88-mph fastball from Detroit Tigers starter Blaine Hardy, a graduate of Edmonds-Woodway High School, when the pitch hit off of the back of Cano's hand.

Shane Greene pitched a 1-2-3 top of the ninth inning to earn the win.

President Trump abandoned a nuclear deal with Iran and announced the "highest level" of sanctions against the OPEC member. And Chinese refiners say there are alternative suppliers, including Russia, Saudi Arabia and exporters in West Africa.

The Tigers send Mike Fiers (3-2) to the mound Monday night against Cleveland's Carlos Carrasco (5-1) in the opener of a three-game series in Detroit.

Bench coach Manny Acta was serving as Seattle's manager - with Ichiro Suzuki filling in as bench coach - because manager Scott Servais was away to watch his daughter receive a master's degree at Mississippi.

Robinson Cano chased Fulmer from the game in the fifth when he hit a 3-run home run to make it 6-2 Seattle.

Dee Gordon grounded out to first to end it.

The Tigers have actually won seven of their last 10 home games, but just 4-10 in Boyd's last 14 home starts. The club's starting pitching staff has an ERA of 3.96, a WHIP of 1.24 and a strikeouts-per-nine of 7.2. He stayed in until the bottom of the second, when he was removed for a pinch hitter.
