Mariners' Robinson Cano suffers a broken bone in his hand on a hit by pitch

Mariners game rained out in Detroit on Friday

Major League Baseball action on Sunday afternoon and the American League West will square off with the American League Central as the Seattle Mariners grapple with the Detroit Tigers at Comerica Park in Detroit, Michigan in the final game of a three-game series.

The Mariners likely won't issue a timetable for Cano until after he meets with the specialist, but if surgery is deemed necessary, the 35-year-old would likely be in store for a multi-week absence.

The Mariners announced later Sunday that Cano has a fractured fifth metacarpal.

Cano was replaced at second base by Andrew Romine. "I went out there trying to go as deep as I possibly can". "Everyone knows what he means to this team, and he's down right now, but we have other guys who can step up". Boyd (2-3) allowed three runs and three hits in six-plus innings.

The Tigers banged out ten hits and walked three times with Pete Kozma going 2-3 with a homer and two runs while JaCoby Jones and Niko Goodrum each had two hits and a run.

So the Mariners called on struggling set-up pitcher, right-handed Juan Nicasio for the bottom of the ninth inning.

"It needed to be challenged after the fact when I saw it", said bench coach Manny Acta, who was filling in for Scott Servais as Seattle's manager.

The Tigers broke a 1-all tie in the sixth. Mike Zunino followed with a single, putting men on first and third, and another walk loaded the bases. Jose Iglesias hit a two-run homer for the Tigers, and Grayson Greiner contributed the first two RBIs of his big league career.

Dee Gordon grounded out to first to end it.

The Mariners activated right-hander Dan Altavilla from the 10-day disabled list before the second game.

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