Tigers DH Martinez headed to paternity list

Doyle BarkerMay 20, 2017

The Tigers edged out a tight 5-4 win against the Orioles on Wednesday, but star first baseman Miguel Cabrera was a late scratch with a new injury.

Baltimore Orioles' Manny Machado argues a strike call with home plate umpire Mark Carlson that ended the team's baseball game against the Detroit Tigers, Wednesday, May 17, 2017, in Detroit.

Bundy, who had gone at least six innings in each of his first eight starts and had not allowed more than three runs in any of them, entered the game as the bastion of consistency on a staff struggling for it.

He allowed a season-high four runs in five innings after being staked to a 7-1 lead Tuesday, a game that could have been concluded in principle early but instead lasted 13 brutal innings.

J.D. Martinez didn't play at all this season until last Friday, when he returned from a sprained foot.

But in the preceding 32 games, they were 8-1 in one-run contests, and 15-3 in games decided by two-runs or fewer. Two of the three games against the Tigers will be national telecast. "He rolled out of bed hot", Ausmus said.

Gray (1-1) allowed three runs on four hits over six innings, striking out eight. Victor Martinez drilled a two-run shot just over the left-field wall, and one out later J.D. Martinez hit his third homer since coming off the disabled list Friday.

Even with the six runs allowed, Bundy was efficient for most of the day.

"The first month of the season, pitching kind of offset some of the challenges we had offensively", Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. Mazara and Andrus combined for three hits, three RBI and two runs on Thursday. He has 43 strikeouts in 36.2 innings, but also has 23 walks.

Baltimore Orioles' Chris Davis is congratulated in the dugout after his solo home run during the 12th inning of a baseball game against the Detroit Tigers, Tuesday, May 16, 2017, in Detroit. "You're always pulling, pulling, pulling.' (Comerica Park) is why I try to pull". Detroit made it 6-4 later in the inning on Avila's run-scoring double.

J.D. Martinez homered twice for the Tigers, including a grand slam that put them up 8-7 in the seventh. Instead of trying for a 3-6-3 double play, Davis stepped on the bag and looked toward the runner heading for home. He was able to stay in the game.

Tigers: Detroit sends LHP Daniel Norris (2-2) to the mound against Texas RHP Nick Martinez (0-2) in the opener of a three-game set against the Rangers.

ARLINGTON, Texas - Ryan Rua hit a three-run home run during a five-run fifth as Texas extended its winning streak to nine games by beating Philadelphia. He'll face Miami left-hander Justin Nicolino (0-0, 1.50).
