DETROIT (AP) — Chris Young pitched six shutout innings and the Seattle Mariners beat Detroit 8-1 Sunday, winning the weekend series and moving back ahead of the Tigers in the race for the second AL wild-card spot.

Seattle’s Lloyd McClendon, managing his first series in Detroit after serving as Jim Leyland’s hitting coach, was ejected for the second straight game. McClendon was tossed for arguing after Detroit’s Alex Avila drew a seventh-inning walk.

Young (12-6) allowed four hits and a walk. He improved to 2-0 with a 1.67 ERA in four career starts against Detroit.

Tigers rookie Robbie Ray (1-3) struggled while replacing injured Anibal Sanchez. He allowed four runs and seven hits in five innings.
