Robinson Cano leaves game after HBP on hand

Robinson Cano leaves game after HBP on hand

Detroit's Jose Iglesias hit a two-run shot in the first game. The Mariners (22-17) have looked like contenders for their first postseason spot since 2001, but losing Cano for an extended period would obviously hurt. The Mariners are putting up 4.64 runs per game while allowing 4.61 per contest.

The Detroit offense has produced 4.4 runs per outing, including 3.7 per game over its last 10 games and 4.4 per game over its last five. Goodrum finished 3-for-4 at the plate with a go-ahead home run in the fifth inning and he scored the winning run in the bottom of the ninth.That came after Jean Segura had tied the game in the top of the eighth with a two-out, two-RBI single to score Ryon Healy and Ben Gamel - making it 4-4. "Everyone knows what he means to this team, and he's down right now, but we have other guys who can step up".

In the other dugout, Seattle's pitchers have allowed 4.6 runs per game and its starting pitchers own a 4.87 ERA, 1.36 WHIP and 8.82 K/9. He also laced a single that moved the go-ahead run to third base in the ninth. "I went out there trying to go as deep as I possibly can".

Dee Gordon grounded out to first to end it.

Castellanos was hit by a pitch in the first inning and had his left hand checked before going to first base.

Robinson Cano chased Fulmer from the game in the fifth when he hit a 3-run home run to make it 6-2 Seattle. He was attended to by manager Scott Servais and a team trainer and walked off the field several minutes later.

The Tigers have actually won seven of their last 10 home games, but just 4-10 in Boyd's last 14 home starts. I like Seattle in this one. The bullpen is still bad, but Tiger starters have a respectable 3.96 ERA on the year, including a very solid 3.18 ERA here at home.
