Three relievers finished the game for Detroit, with Shane Greene pitching the ninth for his eighth save in 10 chances.

The Tigers (17-22) took two of three from the Mariners (22-17), who they will play again in Seattle in four days. Goodrum's homer was a solo opposite-field shot off of James Paxton that gave the Tigers a 3-2 lead in the fifth inning. Detroit are 7-3 in their last 10 home games and are 28-62 in their last 90 overall.

Tigers: Manager Ron Gardenhire said OF Leonys Martin's injured left leg is starting to feel better, and 1B Miguel Cabrera is "coming along" from his right leg issue. He pitched 1.0 inning that night, striking out 2. Bench coach Manny Acta managed Seattle while Servais was away - with Ichiro Suzuki serving as bench coach. Goodrum's single in the ninth allowed JaCoby Jones to advance to third with nobody out, and Iglesias followed with a single up the middle off Juan Nicasio (1-2).

The Tigers broke a 1-all tie in the sixth. "We had a miscommunication over the phone about it and I'm not going to point fingers".


Cano was hit in the third inning against the Detroit Tigers by an 88 miles per hour fastball from Tigers left-hander Blaine Hardy. With two out, Gordon hit a grounder to the right side, but Jimenez mishandled the toss from first baseman John Hicks for an error, loading the bases.

It has been a nice start to the year for the Mariners as they will enter the DH on Saturday at 21-15 on the year and just one game out of first in the American League West.

The Tigers added another run in the seventh when Mikie Mahtook doubled home Iglesias, who had reached base after getting hit by a pitch. 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.
