SEATTLE (AP) -- Jefry Marte got an RBI double for his first major league hit, then added a solo home run Wednesday that sent the Detroit Tigers over the Seattle Mariners 5-4.
   Marte made his big league debut last Sunday and had struck out in his only at-bat. The 24-year-old played first base while the Tigers are minus injured Miguel Cabrera.
   Making his first start, Marte doubled during a three-run second and scored later in the inning.
   Marte homered in the fourth against J.A. Happ (4-6) to make it 4-2.
   Nick Castellanos hit a go-ahead sacrifice fly in the seventh that broke a 4-4 tie.
   Anibal Sanchez (8-7) got the win. Joakim Soria put two runners on base in the ninth but finished for his 19th save in 21 opportunities.
