SEATTLE, May 9 (UPI) -- Justin Verlander struck out six over six innings Tuesday to lead the Detroit Tigers past Seattle 6-4.
Verlander (3-1) allowed three runs on seven hits, which was enough to put the Tigers in position to end a five-game losing streak to the Mariners.
The contest ended in dramatic fashion with Don Kelly leaping into the stands to snag a foul ball by Jesus Montero to end the game with two runners in scoring position. The circus catch clinched save No. 6 for Jose Valverde.
Kyle Seager had two RBI for the Mariners. Kevin Millwood (0-4) took the loss with five runs on eight hits and five walks over five innings.
