Tigers top Mariners on Jose Iglesias walk-off single

The Mariners have the offensive edge in this one and they have a big edge on the mound with Paxton over Hardy, who is making his first Major League Baseball start after 167 games out of the pen in his career.

Paxton retired the first six hitters he faced before allowing two runs in the third on an RBI single by Mahtook and a run-scoring groundout by Pete Kozma.

Mariners hitters have slashed.261/.327/.436 on their way to 4.6 runs scored per game this season, including 4.9 runs per game over the team's last 10 games and 5.4 per game over the team's last five outings (3-2 SU).

The Mariners have not yet announced a timetable for Cano's recovery, though a fracture bone in the hand will likely cost him several weeks.

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

Mariners second baseman Robinson Cano left Seattle's game at Detroit on Sunday with a broken right hand after being hit by a pitch. Detroit is now 15-21 overall and 8-8 at home.

Dee Gordon grounded out to first to end it.

Servais was back managing the Mariners after missing Saturday's games to watch his daughter receive a master's degree at Mississippi. Jean Segura followed with a two-run single.

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. Seattle starter Mike Leake gave up a pair of runs on six hits over seven innings to up his record to 4-3.

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. Both players are on the DL because of hamstring strains.

Seattle heads to Minnesota for one makeup game Monday.
