SEATTLE (AP) - Kyle Seager hit a two-out RBI double off Justin Verlander in the seventh inning to break a scoreless tie and help give the Seattle Mariners a 2-0 victory over the Detroit Tigers Thursday.
 
The teams played the series finale about 13 hours after the Tigers' 2-1 victory in 14 innings in a game that had a combined 40 strikeouts and had Justin Smoak tagged out at home in a collision with catcher Brayan Pena for the final out.
 
Verlander (2-2), who threw 126 pitches in seven innings, gave up a two-out single to Robert Andino. Seager then hit the first pitch into the left-field corner. Andino raced around from first.
 
Endy Chavez followed with a single to left, scoring Seager. Tiger catcher Alex Avila caught the throw from left-fielder Andy Dirks, but did not position himself in front of the plate to block Seager's slide. He slid under the tag.
 
Verlander struck out 12 - two short of his career high - and gave up nine hits, two runs and walked one.
