DETROIT (AP) — Riley Greene had three hits, Javier Báez drove in two runs and the Detroit Tigers beat the Seattle Mariners 5-3 on Sunday to prevent a three-game sweep.

With the bases loaded in the seventh inning, Mariners reliever Matt Brash hit Nick Maton on the foot with a pitch to force in the go-ahead run. Brash then walked Andy Ibáñez, making it 5-3.

Akil Baddoo knocked in the tying run for Detroit with an RBI double in the sixth.

Jason Foley (1-1) pitched a scoreless seventh for the win and Alex Lange struck out two in a hitless ninth for his seventh save. He worked around two walks, whiffing Teoscar Hernández with two on to end it.

Seattle walked five batters, ending a streak of six games with two or fewer walks — the longest in the majors this season.

The Mariners got three runs in the third on a balk by Joey Wentz, an RBI single from Julio Rodríguez and a sacrifice fly from Hernández, his 400th career RBI.

Wentz lasted just 2 2/3 innings, allowing three runs on six hits while walking one and striking out three.

Báez had an RBI groundout in the first and an RBI single in the third.

Mariners starter Logan Gilbert gave up three runs on six hits while walking one and striking out four in 5 2/3 innings. Gabe Speier (1-1) took the loss.


It was the first time Gilbert has struck out fewer than six in eight starts this season.
