Tigers 8, Mariners 3

SEATTLE (WWJ/AP) – The Detroit Tigers have a big seventh inning and beat the Seattle Mariners 8-3 on Monday night.

Brandon Inge scored the go-ahead run on a wild pitch from Seattle reliever Josh Lueke in the seventh inning, Jhonny Peralta later added a bases-clearing triple, and Max Scherzer remained unbeaten on the season as the Detroit Tigers rallied late in the game.

Inge led off the seventh with a single to left, went to second on a sacrifice bunt and moved to third on Ryan Raburn’s single. Lueke (1-1) then dumped a slider in the dirt that catcher Miguel Olivo couldn’t keep from going to the backstop allowing Inge to score.

It was just the start of a six-run inning for the Tigers against Seattle’s relievers.

By that point, Scherzer (3-0) was ready to turn things over to the Tigers’ bullpen.
