Seattle Mariners Top Detroit Tigers, 3-2

Detroit, MI (Sports Network) - Carlos Peguero's solo shot in the seventh inning proved to be the winning run as the Seattle Mariners edged the Detroit Tigers, 3-2, in the second test of a four-game set.

Peguero also had a triple while Adam Kennedy had a pair of doubles and Justin Smoak registered his 11th homer for the Mariners, who have taken two of their last three contests.

Seattle starter Erik Bedard surrendered two runs on three hits with six strikeouts over five innings, but did not factor into the decision to remain unbeaten in his last eight starts.

Victor Martinez had a two-run home run for the Tigers, who were handed just their third loss in the last 12 games. Brad Penny (5-5) absorbed the defeat, allowing three runs on eight hits in seven innings.
