Seattle Mariners at Detroit Tigers Free Pick 05/12/18

The Mariners series opener with the Tigers in Detroit was rained out Friday

Despite the back-and-forth of Seattle, the Mariners are still the better team here and I think they will beat the Tigers more than they won't. They didn't say anything about how long I might be out, but it is broken bad, so there might be surgery, " Cano said after the Mariners' 5-4 loss to the Tigers. Detroit are 7-3 in their last 10 home games and are 28-62 in their last 90 overall. We lose as a team.

In the first game, the Tigers scored three runs in the sixth inning to take a 4-1 lead, with the big blow being a 2-run home run by Jose Iglesias.

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

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. He also laced a single that moved the go-ahead run to third base in the ninth.

Tigers: Castellanos was hit by a pitch in the first inning of the nightcap. 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.

Producer Universal Television had been in talks with Hulu to keep the series afloat, but the streaming service ultimately passed. That's a long shot, but Hulu has done it a few times before - most notably with The Mindy Project - so it's not impossible.

The Tigers have named Michael Fulmer as Saturday's starter versus the visiting Mariners.
