Mahtook's key hit leads Tigers past Padres

(TSX / STATS) -- SAN DIEGO -- The Tigers were facing a long flight home to Detroit on Sunday afternoon as Mikie Mahtook approached the plate in the ninth inning with runners on second and third with two out and the score tied.

In the Tigers' dugout at Petco Park, manager Brad Ausmus discussed pinch-hitting switch hitter Andrew Romine against right-handed San Diego Padres closer Brandon Maurer.

"But Mahtook had been swinging the bat pretty well, and righties seem to have a little more luck against Maurer at times," Ausmus said. "So, we just kind of stuck with Mikie."
