Detroit wins in walk-off style, sending Mariners to rare series loss


Hernandez labored through five innings Saturday night, but Robinson Cano hit a three-run homer in the fifth, and the Mariners slugged their way to a 9-5 victory over Detroit, salvaging a split of their doubleheader with the Tigers.

Following Cano's departure in Sunday's loss to the Tigers, Mariners manager Scott Servais was unwilling to reveal the team's plans at second base, though he specifically mentioned that center fielder Dee Gordon would not be an option at the position.

Candelario is hitting.286/.367/.521 with five home runs, 16 RBIs and 21 runs scored, and Castellanos has put up a line of.321/.379/.500 with three homers, 23 RBIs and 20 runs. If he's forced to miss significant time, then the Mariners will certainly have a tough time replacing his production. The next hitter, Jean Segura, blasted a bases-loaded single up the middle past a diving Iglesias.

Detroit's pitchers have given up 4.6 runs per game overall in 2018 as a unit. With a runner on second and two outs, Tigers' catcher Grayson Greiner stepped to the plate. "I went out there trying to go as deep as I possibly can". He has allowed just one ER on 11 hits in 10.1 innings of work in those games. We lose as a team. He struck out seven and walked two.

In the second game, Tigers starter Michael Fulmer struggled, and the Mariners took advantage. With Acta managing, Ichiro Suzuki served as Seattle's bench coach for the doubleheader.

Friday's game had been rained out, forcing the double dip.

Clearly, the hit-by-pitch was not intentional.

The Tigers' hitters have been led by third baseman Jeimer Candelario and right fielder Nicholas Castellanos. The team described his injury as a contusion. In parts of 3 Major League seasons with the Mariners (2016-c), he is 3-3 with a 3.66 ERA (29 ER, 71.1 IP) with 78 strikeouts and 30 walks in 69 games.

Over on the Tigers' side, they're going with LHP Blaine Hardy on Sunday.
