The Mariners amassed 17 hits and five walks with Ryon Healy and Mike Zunino clubbing sol homers while Kyle Seager smacked a pair of long balls and knocked in five.
Veteran Felix Hernandez toes the rubber for Seattle Saturday against Detroit. Hernandez comes off of an 8-2 defeat to the LA Angels with five runs plated on seven hits and four BB over 5.2 innings.
The Detroit Tigers come off of a 5-4, ten inning defeat at Texas on Wednesday where the pen just wasn’t good enough. Detroit starter Francisco Liriano gave up three runs over four frames with Johnny Barbato allowing a run for a blown save before Warwick Saupold surrendered a walk off homer in the 10th.
The Tigers banged out ten hits and walked three times with Pete Kozma going 2-3 with a homer and two runs while JaCoby Jones and Niko Goodrum each had two hits and a run.
The Tigers have named Michael Fulmer as Saturday’s starter versus the visiting Mariners. Fulmer has four straight no decisions following a 7-6 loss at Texas with five runs scoring on four hits and three walks in 5.2 frames.
Seattle are 6-2 in their last 8 road games and over is 7-3 in Seattle last 10 on grass. Detroit are 7-3 in their last 10 home games and are 28-62 in their last 90 overall. Seattle are 2-5 in the last 7 meetings in Detroit.
Fulmer is the best Detroit has and Hernandez is on the downside of his career yet still appears to have something left. Perhaps something on the King…
