Detroit Tigers fall in 11 innings, 9-6, vs. Mariners on Wednesday
DETROIT (AP) — Jake Fraley made a game-saving catch in the ninth inning, then drove in the go-ahead run in the 11th to lead the Seattle Mariners over the Detroit Tigers 9-6 on Wednesday night.
Fraley robbed Isaac Paredes of a game-ending homer with one out in the ninth, reaching well over the left-field fence to make the catch, then threw to first for an inning-ending double play.
After both teams scored one run in the 10th, Fraley gave the Mariners a 5-4 lead with a one-out RBI single in the 11th.
Daniel Norris (0-2) hit Taylor Trammell, loading the bases, and Shed Long Jr.a grounded into a forceout at the plate. Dillon Thomas boosted the lead to 7-4 with a two-run single for his first major league hit, and Tom Murphy hit a two-run double for a five-run lead advantage.
Robbie Grossman led off the bottom half with a two-run homer off Kenyan Middleton, who allowed a single and then retired three batters in order.
JT Chargois (1-0) won after throwing a run-scoring wild pitch in the 10th.
