The Tigers got all of their runs on one swing of the bat by Victor Martinez.  That was good enough to hold a 2-1 lead for a while.  The Mariners reached the seats one more time than the Tigers did and beat Detroit 3-2. 

It was a well-pitched game for both teams, but somebody had to lose.  In doing so, the Tigers missed a golden opportunity to pull into a first-place tie with Cleveland in the American League Central division as the Indians were hammered by the Yankees last night. 

The Tigers and Mariners will play game 3 of their 4-game series tonight at Comerica Park.  First pitch at 7:05.  Max Scherzer will be the starting pitcher for Detroit.
