Mariners win game 1 of 4 game series, 6-2 Detroit
SEATTLE, WA —
We head into series game one where the Mariners took on Detroit and it was action packed!
Let’s kick it off top of the third, bases loaded. Sam Gaviglio gets Alex Avila to ground into the inning-ending 3-6-1 double play. The game is still zip to zip.
We skip ahead to the top of the fifth, Detroit on the board with 1. We have one runner on first when Ian Kinsler takes Sam Gaviglio into left field hitting that left corner for the RBI double, it’s 2 to zero Tigers.
Now in the bottom Heredia lifts one up and out to left off Sanchez with a man on for the two-run home run. Game now tied 2 and 2 a-piece.
We skip ahead now bottom of the eighth with one man on. My man Mike Zunino takes the plate and drills this one deep to center off Francisco Rodriguez for the 2-run home run.
Mariners take their first win of the series, final score 6 to 2 Mariners. They head into game 2 tonight. I’ll have full highlights for you tonight at 11pm.
