10/04 20:59 CDT Catcher Torrens gets win, Mariners top Tigers in 10 innings Catcher Torrens gets win, Mariners top Tigers in 10 innings By TIM BOOTH AP Sports Writer SEATTLE (AP) --- Catcher Luis Torrens became the first position player in Seattle history to earn a pitching win by working the 10th inning, and the Mariners inched closer to locking up their postseason matchup by beating the Detroit Tigers 7-6 on Tuesday in the first game of a doubleheader. With the Mariners focused on preserving arms with the playoffs on the horizon, Torrens (1-0) took the mound when the game went to extra innings and got the unlikely victory when Abraham Toro drove in the winning run with a sacrifice fly. Victor Reyes opened the 10th as Detroit's automatic runner on second and Torrens allowed two deep flyouts, with the second by Riley Greene scoring Reyes with the go-ahead run. Carlos Santana then singled off Gregory Soto (2-10) in the bottom of the 10th to score automatic runner Eugenio Suarez and tie it. Jarred Kelenic followed with a base hit to advance Santana to third and Toro hit a fly ball that was deep enough for Santana to score from third base. The win put Seattle on the cusp of locking up the No. 5 seed for the American League playoffs and a date in Toronto against the Blue Jays in the wild-card series. The Mariners need one more win or a loss by Tampa Bay. Mitch Haniger and Curt Casali homered earlier in the game for Seattle. Reyes and Spencer Torkelson both hit two-run homers for Detroit and Greene had an RBI double. Detroit led 5-3 after Reyes' homer in the seventh, but Seattle rallied for a pair of runs in the bottom of the inning on two-out RBI hits by Ty France and Suarez. Seattle's primary concern was staying healthy ahead of the upcoming AL wild-card series and had a moment of worry in the sixth inning when Kelenic was hit by a 91 mph fastball from Detroit starter Eduardo Rodriguez. Kelenic was hit in the ribs and was down for a few minutes before jogging to first base and remaining in the game. TRAINER'S ROOM Seattle placed utility man Sam Haggerty on the 10-day injured list with a groin injury that will keep him out for at least the first two rounds of the playoffs. Haggerty was hurt during a stolen base attempt in the ninth inning of Monday's loss and could have a significant trickle down on Seattle's playoff roster because of his versatility. Seattle recalled Toro from Triple-A Tacoma to take Haggerty's spot. UP NEXT Tigers: RHP Will Vest is expected to start the second game as a bullpen day for the Tigers. Mariners: LHP Justus Sheffield will start the second game after being added as one of the extra players for the doubleheader. ___ More AP MLB: https://apnews.com/hub/mlb and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports
