The Mariners series opener with the Tigers in Detroit was rained out Friday

Hardy is more of a reliever, but he's done fairly well so far. In his career, he has made 167 appearances (all out of the pen) and he has gone 9-4 with a 3.60 ERA and a 1.45 ERA in those games, including 6-1 with a 3.19 ERA in 87 pen appearances here at home. Nicholas Castellanos left in the second inning because of an injured finger on his left hand, and manager Ron Gardenhire was ejected in the fifth. Two innings earlier, he got the Tigers' first hit off James Paxton, ensuring the Mariners starter wouldn't be throwing another no-hitter on Sunday.

The Detroit offense has produced 4.4 runs per outing, including 3.7 per game over its last 10 games and 4.4 per game over its last five. Haniger is hitting.297/.384/.609 with 10 home runs, 30 RBIs and 19 runs scored, while Cano (.286/.386/.421) has produced three homers, 20 RBIs and 22 runs scored. Mike Zunino followed with a single, putting men on first and third, and another walk loaded the bases.

Detroit's pitchers have given up 4.6 runs per game overall in 2018 as a unit.

Kyle Seager hit a solo homer in the second for Seattle, but Niko Goodrum homered and had three hits for the Tigers.

The Seattle Mariners fell to the Detroit Tigers Sunday 4-5 after Robinson Cano left the game in the third with a broken right hand after he was hit by a pitch.

Not long afterward, X-rays determined that Cano suffered a fractured fifth metacarpal bone in his right hand.

The Tigers have won just two of their last six games after splitting the two games on Saturday. He ended up giving the Tigers six innings while striking out six and allowing three earned runs.

Felix Hernandez (5-3) got the win but labored through five innings, allowing five runs and eight hits.

In the other dugout, Seattle's pitchers have allowed 4.6 runs per game and its starting pitchers own a 4.87 ERA, 1.36 WHIP and 8.82 K/9.

The Tigers broke a 1-all tie in the sixth.
