The Detroit Tigers magic number to clinch the AL Central is now at six after a 6-2 win over the Seattle Mariners last night at Comerica Park.
Austin Jackson went two-for-five at the plate with two RBIs.
Miguel Cabrera and Don Kelly each hit a solo home run.
Starter Anibal Sanchez did not figure in the decision, giving up two runs on six hits while striking out ten, and Al Alburquerque notched his third win of the year in relief.
Tonight, Justin Verlander (13-11, 3.66 ERA) gets the start for Detroit and Seattle sends Hisashi Iwakuma (12-6, 2.87 ERA) to the mound.
First pitch at Comerica Park is 7:08 p.m.
