Seattle Dumps Detroit 2-1

The Tigers were trimmed by the Seattle Mariners 2-1 yesterday at Comerica Park.  

Justin Verlander did not figure in the decision, surrendering one run on five hits while striking out eight in seven innings.  

Francisco Rodriguez picked up his second loss of the season after giving up one run on two hits in the top of the ninth.  Tyler Collins went three-for-three at the plate and scored the only run for Detroit in the sixth.

The Tigers host the Chicago White Sox for a three-game weekend series starting tonight.  Matthew Boyd heads to the hill for Detroit .
