Robinson Cano leaves Mariners game after cringing hit-by-pitch

The Tigers split a traditional doubleheader against the Seattle Mariners on Saturday, winning the first game 4-3 before falling in the second game, 9-5.

Not long afterward, X-rays determined that Cano suffered a fractured fifth metacarpal bone in his right hand.

Cano was hit in the third inning against the Detroit Tigers by an 88 miles per hour fastball from Tigers left-hander Blaine Hardy.

Utility man Andrew Romine replaced Cano at second base following the hit by pitch.

Tiger Woods Climbs Leaderboard With a 65 at the Players Championship
The third round of The Players' Championship is underway at Sawgrass. "I think I was flawless inside of 12, 15". Spieth finished strongly with three successive birdies at the end of his third round.

Dan is 2-2 with 4 holds and a 4.38 ERA (6 ER, 12.1 IP) in 13 relief appearances with the Mariners this season. Seattle Mariners manager Scott Servais and a trainer exited the dugout to help him before they eventually aided Cano off of the field.

James Paxton allowed three runs and six hits in six innings for the Mariners in his first start since throwing a no-hitter Tuesday at Toronto. That made it 4-1 Tigers. He hit a three-run homer in Seattle's win Saturday night.

Mariners hitters have slashed.261/.327/.436 on their way to 4.6 runs scored per game this season, including 4.9 runs per game over the team's last 10 games and 5.4 per game over the team's last five outings (3-2 SU). Overall, the pitching has improved, but the Tigers have not been scoring as much as in years past, especially of late as they have averaged just 3.70 rpg in their last 10 games (prior to Saturday). Seattle tied it in the fourth on Dee Gordon's RBI single. "I went out there trying to go as deep as I possibly can". With two out, Gordon hit a grounder to the right side, but Jimenez mishandled the toss from first baseman John Hicks for an error, loading the bases. Detroit broke a 1-all tie in the sixth against Seattle starter Marco Gonzales (3-3). The under is 4-0-1 in Detroit's last five during game three of a series and 5-2 in their last seven Sunday games. He has allowed just one ER on 11 hits in 10.1 innings of work in those games. The Mariners have the offensive edge in this one and they have a big edge on the mound with Paxton over Hardy, who is making his first Major League Baseball start after 167 games out of the pen in his career.
