M's blow 4-run lead, lose 7-6

DETROIT, MI -- Clete Thomas' two-out, RBI single capped a two-run rally in the ninth inning and lifted the Detroit Tigers to a 7-6 win Thursday over the Seattle Mariners.

The AL Central-leading Tigers trailed 6-2 before scoring three times in the sixth and two more in the final inning, setting off a celebration around Thomas at first base.

Bobby Seay (4-2) earned the win for pitching a scoreless inning, getting Jarrod Washburn off the hook after a poor performance against his former team.

David Aardsma (3-5) took the loss after giving walking pinch-hitter Carlos Guillen to begin the ninth, allowing Miguel Cabrera's double, Brandon Inge's tying sacrifice fly and Thomas' single to right on a full count.
