LEADING OFF: Rangers roll into road trip, Wood good for LA

Victor Martinez hit a go-ahead, two-run homer in his final game of the week and J.D. Martinez supplied a three-run blast as the Detroit Tigers edged the Baltimore Orioles 6-5 on Thursday afternoon.

The Tigers opted against trying to use Victor Martinez regularly at first base during Cabrera's previous absence.

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. He'd played in all 38 games for Baltimore this season, hitting.224 with nine home runs. But the reality is that you're hitting the ball good right at people and that doesn't count. Most times you score five runs, you should win.

Jarrod Dyson came home on Heredia's hit, his third run of the game, as the Mariners improved to 13-6 at home. The five-hour, 19-minute slugfest not only sent Detroit to its third defeat in four tries, but it also exhausted both teams' bullpens as each side used six relievers. Against good teams? We're going to find out.

Camden Yards has always been a haven for the Orioles, though since they left there just over a week ago, the quality starting pitching that helped them to a league-leading start has been somewhere else entirely.

Now, the question is, how to protect yourself from the WannaCry Ransomware. "The numbers are still going up", Wainwright said. Not to mention the fact that those responsible were able to borrow weaponized software code apparently created by the U.S.

Montero (0-3) relieved to start the 11th, and Hermann worked the count full, fouled off a pitch and connected on a belt-high fastball for his first game-ending homer. Tyler Collins was his nemesis today, whacking two home runs and driving in four of the five runs Jimenez allowed. Collins is mired in an 0-for-30 slump, and Detroit didn't have any position players left to pinch hit. "He didn't go", Orioles manager Buck Showalter said afterward. "That's a great win". Recalled from Triple-A last Friday, Sogard has two homers and is hitting.476, including four-hit games Wednesday and Thursday in wins over San Diego.

RAYS 7, INDIANS 4: Corey Dickerson hit a three-run homer - his third homer in two days - and Alex Cobb controlled Cleveland over seven innings as Tampa Bay completed its most successful trip in a year. Bundy made it six innings and it wasn't like he fell apart at the end due to being exhausted. He surrendered eight hits and three walks while striking out five.

J.D. Martinez, who came off the disabled list four games ago, also hit a solo shot in the third prior to his third career grand slam.

Just when it seems like the Detroit Tigers have too many bats, and not enough places to play them, events conspire to make that seem silly.

"The first inning he pitched, it looked like his command was a little off, but then he settled in", Detroit manager Brad Ausmus said.
