Zach McKinstry led off the bottom of the first with a single and advanced to second on Greene’s single. Both runners moved up on a Gilbert wild pitch before McKinstry scored on Baez’s grounder.

Seattle took a 3-1 lead in the third. J.P. Crawford and Ty France led off the inning with back-to-back singles. Wentz’s balk brought in Crawford. France scored on Rodriguez’s single.

After a Eugenio Suarez single and a fielder’s choice, Rodriguez scored on a Teoscar Hernandez sacrifice fly.

Another two-out run tied the game in the sixth. Andy Ibanez hit a double, ending Gilbert’s day, and Akil Baddoo smacked an opposite-field double off Trevor Gott to knock in Ibanez.

Detroit took the lead in the seventh against Gabe Speier (1-1) and Matt Brash. Jake Rogers walked and Jonathan Schoop singled to lead off the inning. After two outs, Torkelson walked to load the bases. Nick Maton was hit by a pitch to force in a run and Ibanez walked to score another run.
