Mike Sweeney and Josh Wilson took turns crediting the other for a rally that seemed so unlikely from the punchless Mariners.

Seattle’s old designated hitter with a balky back, and the youthful looking shortstop nicknamed “paperboy” could both take an equal stake in a second straight comeback win.

Sweeney gave Seattle a chance with a two-run homer off Detroit reliever Ryan Perry, and Wilson capped the four-run eighth inning with a two-run single as the Mariners rallied for a 5-4 win over the Tigers on Wednesday afternoon.

Seattle swept the two-game set and both times came through in the eighth inning. On Tuesday night it was Milton Bradley’s single putting the Mariners ahead for good. A day later, Sweeney, Wilson and a handful of others combined to exploit an off-day from the best bullpen in the American League.
