Bloomquist's 2 RBIs lead M's over Tigers

SEATTLE — Willie Bloomquist delivered a pair of two-out RBI singles to help lift the Seattle Mariners to a 3-2 victory over the Detroit Tigers on Saturday night.

Chris Young allowed two runs and three hits over six innings to improve to 5-2 on the year. After allowing the first two runners to reach base in the ninth inning, Fernando Rondey picked up his 14th save of the season.

The Mariners took advantage of Detroit starter Drew Smyly's command problems.

Stefen Romero and John Buck each singled to put runners on the corners with one out in the second inning. Cole Gillespie hit a dribbler off the end of the bat just past the mound to score Romero and give the Mariners a 1-0 lead. Bloomquist added another run with a two-out RBI single that scored Buck from second.

Smyly (2-4) allowed seven hits and threw 105 pitches in just four innings of work before being ousted by the Mariners.
