Cano back in lineup after fouling ball off foot

DETROIT -- Second baseman Robinson Cano was in the starting lineup for the Mariners on Saturday night, a day after he left the game in the eighth inning with a sore right foot.

Cano fouled a pitch off his foot in a seventh-inning at-bat and was hobbling around afterward. But manager Lloyd McClendon said he thinks it's all systems go for Cano against Tigers pitcher David Price.

"As far as I know, he's fine," McClendon said. "I haven't heard anything different from the trainers."

Cano went 2-for-4 and hit his 11th homer in Friday's 7-2 win for the Mariners, who leapfrogged the Tigers for the second American League Wild Card spot with the victory.
