Tigers edge Mariners, 3-2
A lot of teams have been winning games against Detroit, which has the worst record in baseball.
The Tigers finally ended an eight-game losing streak to Seattle, winning 3-2 Wednesday at Comerica Park.
A two-run single by Victor Reyes and RBI single by Harold Castro put Detroit ahead 3-0 on Seattle starter Marco Gonzales.
Solo homers by J.P. Crawford (fourth inning) and Daniel Vogelbach (fifth inning) made things close.
The Mariners managed only five other hits, all singles.
Detroit's Edwin Jackson, who has played for a major league-record 14 teams, gave up four hits and two runs in five innings to get the win. Gonzales gave up 11 hits and three runs while striking out six and walking one in six innings to fall to 12-10.
A night after hitting three home runs for six RBIs, Kyle Seager went 1 for 3 with a single.
The Mariners (49-72) and Tigers (38-81) play the final game of the three-game series at 10:10 a.m. PT Thursday. After an opener, Tommy Milone (1-7, 4.70) pitches for Seattle opposite Spencer Turnbull (3-10, 3.68).
