SEATTLE -- The Mariners won another game on Saturday, but lost two key players as reliever Nick Vincent strained his right groin muscle in the top of the eighth inning and shortstop was taken out after being kicked in the head sliding into second in the bottom of that frame.
Segura underwent concussion tests after getting hit hard by second baseman 's foot on a double-play relay on an groundout by Mitch Haniger in Seattle's 4-3, 12-inning victory.
The Mariners shortstop went 3-for-4 with a home run before the injury and is hitting .324 on the season.

"We'll know more tomorrow on [Segura]," manager Scott Servais said. "Him and Vincent coming out with a groin strain, we'll know more once we have some more tests on those guys. We'll keep our fingers crossed."

Vincent retired the first two batters he faced in the eighth, then motioned for athletic trainer Rob Nodine after throwing a 2-0 cutter to Sano.

After a brief discussion with Nodine and Servais, Vincent walked off the field and was replaced by .

The veteran right-hander has a 4.09 ERA on the season and is 2-1 with a 2.13 ERA in his last 13 appearances dating back to April 28.
