Tigers, Mariners split doubleheader

Coming up Sunday from Comerica Park, the Seattle Mariners and the Detroit Tigers will be wrapping up their Major League Baseball series.

The teams will play a doubleheader Saturday.

The Tigers have actually won seven of their last 10 home games, but just 4-10 in Boyd's last 14 home starts.

Fans with tickets for Friday's game may exchange their unused tickets at any time for any future similar-or-lesser priced regular season game in the next 12 months, excluding Opening Day 2019.

The postponement is the seventh for the Tigers at home this season.

The Mariners are 4-1 in their last five during game three of a series and 4-0 in Paxton's last four road starts.

Seattle has posted 24.7 Runs + Hits + Errors per game over its last 10 outings and 27.4 over its last five. They really need to get those two back and if the pitching and offense can get on the same page then the Tigers have a shot at taking the American League Central.

The Tigers are coming off a 5-4 loss at Texas.

Toeing the rubber for the Tigers will be Blaine Hardy and he has gone 0-0 with a 2.70 ERA in three games so far with all three appearances coming out of the pen. The Tigers are putting up 4.42 runs per game while allowing 4.64 per contest.
