Robinson Cano leaves game after HBP on hand

Robinson Cano leaves game after HBP on hand

We lose as a team. Jose Iglesias singled up the middle through the Mariners' drawn-in infield to score Niko Goodrum from third base with no outs.

Then Goodrum singled past diving Ryon Healy down the first base line, allowing Jones to reach third with no outs.

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. The X-rays confirm that there isn't anything more serious at play, so even if he sits out for a bit, Castellanos should avoid the disabled list.

Shane Greene pitched a 1-2-3 top of the ninth inning to earn the win. The teams split a doubleheader Saturday that started at 4:10 p.m.

Cano was struck by an 88 miles per hour fastball from left-hander Blaine Hardy in the third inning.

So for the first time in three starts Paxton didn't have a benchmark start. "We had a miscommunication over the phone about it and I'm not going to point fingers".

John Hicks and Pete Kozma each had two RBI to lead the Tigers in the second game. That gave Detroit a 2-1 lead.

Dee Gordon grounded out to first to end it.

But the Mariners bounced back.

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.

The 35-year-old Cano is hitting.287 with four home runs and 23 RBIs this season.

On Saturday, the Tigers called up left-handed pitcher Louis Coleman from Triple-A Toledo, and Gardenhire shook hands with the 20th pitcher to grace his clubhouse already. Before that? He last had to go to the DL for just over a month in 2006 with a strained left hamstring while playing for the Yankees. I like Seattle in this one. The teams were postponed April 8.
