David Price pitched eight innings of one-run ball Saturday as the Detroit Tigers snapped Seattle’s five-game winning streak with a 4-2 victory after the visiting Mariners lost their ace, Felix Hernandez, to a leg injury. The Detroit Tigers purchased the contract of former All-Star pitcher Jim Johnson and optioned reliever Melvin Mercedes to Triple-A Toledo after their 4-2 win over the Seattle Mariners on Saturday night.
