Tigers DH Martinez headed to paternity list

The Detroit Tigers designated hitter slugged a go-ahead, two-run homer in his final game of the week and J.D. Martinez supplied a three-run blast in a 6-5 victory over the Baltimore Orioles on Thursday afternoon.

In the fifth inning, Adam Jones broke what was then a 3-3 tie with a solo home run that just barely scraped over the fence in left field.

DETROIT (AP) - Chris Davis homered in the 12th inning and again in the 13th. Most times you score five runs, you should win. After J.D. Martinez walked with one out in the bottom of the inning, Victor Martinez drilled his third homer of the season into the right-field stands.

Jarrod Dyson came home on Heredia's hit, his third run of the game, as the Mariners improved to 13-6 at home. "Everyone is going to have an off night, and we had that happen to a couple guys today, so I'm just glad I could get in there and do my job". The Orioles had only six on the roster Tuesday and used them all.

After a sluggish start, Martinez is hitting.360 in May. Miley has yet to allow more than two earned runs in his last five outings.

The Orioles are on a four-game losing streak coming into today. "That's a great win".

His homer was his third of the three-game series, as the Tigers (20-19) took two out of three from the Orioles (23-16).

"The first month of the season, the pitching kind of offset challenges that we had offensively", he said. "A lot of times, when you're down 7-1, it can be tough, but guys continued to put good at-bats together". They had some balls that would have been home runs in most parts in center field, too. According to MLB's Statcast program, the 350-foot home run left Jones' bat at 88.7 miles per hour, making it the slowest home run hit this season.

DIAMONDBACKS 5, METS 4: Chris Herrmann homered off Rafael Montero leading off the 11th inning, giving Arizona a win at Phoenix and sending NY to its seventh straight loss.

Hot-hitting Alex Avila will likely take one spot or the other, but the Tigers will have to make a move to add another player, once they place Martinez on the three-day paternity list after Thursday's day game. Bundy has a 5-1 record and a 2.26 ERA, and he has tossed at least six innings in all eight of his starts. Baltimore's Wade Miley permitted four runs and eight hits in five-plus innings.

J.D. Martinez also is getting plenty of results. Detroit is also 9-4 in Norris' last 13 starts on grass, and the over is 7-1-1 in the Tigers' last nine Friday games. "Now he's actually driving the ball", Detroit manager Brad Ausmus said.

Orioles: Castillo was out with right shoulder tendinitis and had not played since April 30.

ASTROS 3, MARLINS 0: Lance McCullers allowed no earned runs for the third start in a row, and Houston completed a three-game sweep at Miami.
