In the gloom of the Detroit Tigers' clubhouse after giving away a four-run lead, losing pitcher Buck Farmer earned a glimmer of hope -- that manager Ron Gardenhire believed in him enough to protect a late-inning lead.
Left-hander Francisco Liriano is trying to snap out of a May funk as his last two outings have been his shortest of the 2018 season so far. In that span, Liriano saw two no-decisions, allowing 11 hits and eight earned runs in 8 1/3 innings (an 8.64 ERA). He's also walked seven against six strikeouts. For the season, Liriano is 3-1 with a 4.03 ERA. He'll be opposing Mariners lefty Wade LeBlanc (0-0, 2.51) on Sunday at 4:10 p.m. ET.
It took one bad inning to undo what had been a superb night from Detroit Tigers starter Michael Fulmer. And in doing so, undid Fulmer's chance for his first win since April 7 as the Tigers fell to the Seattle Mariners 5-4 at Safeco Field on Friday night.
Center fielder Leonys Martin was back in the lineup and led off for the Tigers against the Seattle Mariners on Friday after being activated from the 10-day disabled list.
Here's MLB Pipeline's roundup of the top prospect performances in the Minor Leagues on Friday.
Matthew Boyd had a career-high nine strikeouts in his first career start in his hometown. Jose Iglesias ensured that wouldn't go to waste. The Tigers' No. 8 hitter singled for his second hit Thursday night with two outs and the bases loaded in the top of the eighth inning off Seattle reliever Nick Vincent (1-1). That scored Victor Martinez and Mikie Mahtook in Detroit's 3-2 victory over the Mariners to begin a four-game series at Safeco Field.

Leonys Martin said he's talked to Robinson Cano and that he believes in his friend and former teammate. Martin, the Tigers' center fielder, says there's no way the Mariners' superstar second baseman masked performance-enhancing drugs with a diuretic Cano said was prescribed by a doctor in the Dominican Republic. Major League Baseball suspended Cano 80 games on Tuesday.
The first quarter of the 2018 season has featured the Indians and Twins jousting for the top spot in the American League Central, as many expected. No team in the division having a record above .500 is more of a surprise. Here's what we know overall about the five AL Central squads at the season's quarter mark.
Trevor Bauer cooled off the red-hot Tigers on a warm Wednesday afternoon at Comerica Park, delivering eight shutout innings as the Indians roughed up Ryan Carpenter during a 6-0 Tigers loss.
Nicholas Castellanos' homer chased starter Josh Tomlin in the sixth inning, but the bulk of the Tigers' furious rally came in the seventh against All-Star lefty Andrew Miller. JaCoby Jones and Pete Kozma greeted him with RBI doubles, and Detroit took its first lead of the night with three straight walks to cap the five-run outburst and put the Tigers one game behind the AL Central-leading Tribe.
As Miguel Cabrera tries to rehab a strained right hamstring and keep his back from flaring up, he's going to make sure he's back to full strength before he returns to action for the Tigers.
Niko Goodrum's two-homer, five-RBI performance and Mike Fiers' six innings of one-run ball helped the injury-depleted Tigers beat the Indians for the first time since July 2017. Jose Ramirez gave Cleveland an early lead with a solo homer in the first, and Edwin Encarnacion and Francisco Lindor added RBI knocks in the eighth and ninth, respectively.
As expected, Jeimer Candelario will not need surgery on his balky left wrist. But he will need a stint on the disabled list to rehab. Thus, the bright young third baseman became the fifth Tiger to go on the DL in the last week and a half, and the sixth overall.
Jose Iglesias' single up the middle drove in JaCoby Jones as Detroit took a 5-4 victory over the Mariners in the rubber match of their three-game series at Comerica Park. Kyle Seager homered for Seattle, which lost Robinson Cano to a broken pinkie finger after he was hit by a Blaine Hardy pitch in the third inning.
Shelly Rathbun faced 11 surgeries, 10 rounds of chemotherapy and seven weeks of radiation treatment after she was diagnosed with Stage 3 breast cancer in February 2011. The Tigers began their run of four consecutive American League Central titles that year. She credits the latter with helping her get through the former, becoming a fan of Justin Verlander, Brandon Inge and Ian Kinsler.

Here's MLB Pipeline's roundup of the top prospect performances in the Minor Leagues on Sunday.
Michael Fulmer struggled for the second consecutive outing, this time with big swings from the Mariners. Ryon Healy's two-run home run in the fourth and Robinson Cano's three-run homer in the fifth helped Seattle salvage a doubleheader split with a 9-5 Tigers loss Saturday night at Comerica Park.
Machado snags carom off base for an out
Matthew Boyd outpitched Marco Gonzales in the opening game of a twin bill in Comerica Park that Detroit held on to win, 4-3. Jose Iglesias' 2-run homer was the big blow, and Grayson Greiner added 2 RBI singles. The Mariners were held to 4 hits and left the bases loaded in the 9th.
Here's MLB Pipeline's roundup of the top prospect performances in the Minor Leagues on Saturday.
Louis Coleman has made 213 Major League appearances since his debut for the Royals in 2011, but like many older middle relievers, he was having trouble finding a chance to compete in a big league camp as Spring Training approached. Little more than a month into the season, Coleman is at Comerica Park, his name stitched onto a jersey with number 19 on the back after the Tigers purchased his contract from Triple-A Toledo.
The bullpen cart the Tigers introduced this season has yet to have a passenger. Depending on when Alex Wilson returns from the ruptured plantar fascia in his left foot, he could be the first.
Here's MLB Pipeline's roundup of the top prospect performances in the Minor Leagues on Friday.
Considering the standings, it's safe to call the American League Central an unsung division. But whether it's the title-contending Indians, the up-and-coming Twins, or the rebuilding Tigers, Royals and White Sox, every team has an unsung hero -- someone who doesn't get enough credit for the impact he makes.
The Tigers put up a fight with an injury-depleted lineup, but their bullpen couldn't stop Nomar Mazara, whose game-tying homer in the seventh and walk-off homer leading off the 10th sent Detroit to a 5-4 loss Wednesday afternoon at Globe Life Park.
Here's MLB Pipeline's roundup of the top prospect performances in the Minor Leagues on Wednesday.
Jeimer Candelario, Victor Martinez and Jose Iglesias homered as part of a five-run outburst over the first two innings, creating a lead that held up thanks to a four-out save from Shane Greene in a 7-4 Tigers win over the Rangers at Globe Life Park. Six of Detroit's nine batters churned out hits the first time through the order. They managed only one more hit off Texas starter Mike Minor, who lasted seven innings, but tacked on two late insurance runs. Adrian Beltre had three hits and two RBIs in his return and Jurickson Profar homered to pace the Rangers' offense. Tigers starter Mike Fiers earned the win with 5 1/3 strong innings.
The Rangers couldn't stop Leonys Martin from running all over Globe Life Park on Monday. On Tuesday, a strained left hamstring did. Indeed, the injuries are piling up for the Tigers. After losing Miguel Cabrera, Alex Wilson and Jordan Zimmermann to the disabled list on their current weeklong road trip, they placed Martin -- their leadoff hitter and center fielder -- on the 10-day disabled list Tuesday night.
The Tigers lost two veteran pitchers from their young staff Monday, placing starter Jordan Zimmermann and reliever Alex Wilson on the 10-day disabled list with a right shoulder impingement and left plantar fascia strain, respectively.
The names on the jerseys have changed through the years, but this much remains true for the Tigers: No lead is completely safe in Texas. Michael Fulmer had allowed one hit and one other ball out of the infield through 21 batters and was protecting a four-run advantage in the bottom of the sixth inning. Three batters and three hits later, he was gone. Another batter later, so was Detroit's lead, setting off a back-and-forth duel that ended with a 7-6 loss to the Rangers on Monday night at Globe Life Park.
Leonys Martin had plenty of returns to his old home at Globe Life Park as a member of the Mariners, but he never had a game like this. Back in Texas for the first time as a member of the Tigers, Martin put on an all-around show Monday, making a four-star diving catch and hitting a clutch two-run homer against the Rangers.
The Tigers spoke with players Monday about their infield shifts with runners on base after the Royals stole two bases on them Sunday without anyone covering the bags. But after shortstop Jose Iglesias pointed out that they can't cover two places at once, manager Ron Gardenhire countered that they must use their instincts to know where to be, regardless of what the shift dictates.
The flu bug ran down the Tigers as their series here ended. The Royals left them feeling run on. Then Mike Moustakas left them feeling run over.
