Tigers rough up Mariners

Johnny Damon cracked a two-run homer as the Detroit Tigers clawed apart the Seattle Mariners 7-1 Friday night in the opener of a three-game series at Comerica Park.

The Tigers won the game as -165 favorites, while the eight runs went as a PUSH against the posted over/under (8) set by sportsbooks.

Austin Jackson and Don Kelly batted in a pair of runs for the Tigers. Max Scherzer scattered three hits and one earned run over eight innings for the win.

Doug Fister was tagged with the loss, giving up five runs off six hits over his 4 2-3 innings for the Mariners.
