Mariners second baseman leaves game with fractured hand

DETROIT (AP) - Jose Iglesias hit an RBI single in the bottom of the ninth inning to give the Detroit Tigers a 5-4 victory over Seattle on Sunday after the Mariners lost standout second baseman Robinson Cano to a fractured hand. He was hit by a pitch from Detroit starter Blaine Hardy in the third inning and left the game.

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

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

Seattle's hitters have been led by outfielder Mitch Haniger and second baseman Robinson Cano, who collectively have blasted 13 home runs. Seattle is now 22-16 overall and 14-8 on the road.

Shortly after he announced his end-of-season departure, there were reports that a number of clubs, including Paris Saint-Germain, were interested in his service.

After splitting the doubleheader on Saturday, who will take the rubber match this afternoon when the Detroit Tigers host the Seattle Mariners at 1:10PM ET? Overall, the pitching has improved, but the Tigers have not been scoring as much as in years past, especially of late as they have averaged just 3.70 rpg in their last 10 games (prior to Saturday). "I went out there trying to go as deep as I possibly can".

Dee Gordon grounded out to first to end it. He has allowed just one ER on 11 hits in 10.1 innings of work in those games. In his career, he has made 167 appearances (all out of the pen) and he has gone 9-4 with a 3.60 ERA and a 1.45 ERA in those games, including 6-1 with a 3.19 ERA in 87 pen appearances here at home.

In the opener, Jose Iglesias hit a two-run homer and former Oregon State pitcher Matthew Boyd (2-3) allowed three hits and three runs while striking out six and walking three in six innings for the win. Detroit also recalled left-hander Ryan Carpenter from Toledo to be the 26th man for the second game of the doubleheader.

Servais was back managing the Mariners after missing Saturday's games to watch his daughter receive a master's degree at Mississippi.
