Detroit Grounds Mariners, Breaks Five-Game Streak
DETROIT (AP) — David Price pitched eight innings of one-run ball Saturday night, and the Detroit Tigers snapped Seattle’s five-game winning streak with a 4-2 victory over Felix Hernandez and the Mariners.
Price allowed three hits, struck out seven and walked three in his first game at Comerica Park since he was acquired in a trade with Tampa Bay last month. Joe Nathan worked the ninth for his 25th save, yielding Endy Chavez’s RBI single.
It was Nathan’s first appearance since making a profane gesture at Tigers fans on Wednesday, and he received a mixture of cheers and boos when he was introduced.
Hernandez was hit on the leg by a hard ground ball in the fourth. He worked the fifth before departing after 92 pitches.
