Tigers' V-Mart to go on paternity leave, miss Rangers

Detroit Tigers' Tyler Collins, right, is congratulated by J.D. Martinez after a three-run home run to right field during the fifth inning of a baseball game against the Baltimore Orioles, Wednesday, May 17, 2017, in Detroit.

It would be simple just to plug lefty Jim Adduci (10-day DL, oblique strain) into the hole, if he were ready to come off the DL, but it appears he will not be ready when his 10 days expire on Sunday.

Zimmermann (3-2) is saddled with a 6.28 ERA heading into his eighth start this season, a matinee outing Thursday in the finale of a three-game series against the Baltimore Orioles at Comerica Park.

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

He's helped the Tigers quite a bit lately, batting.301 over his last 27 games with seven doubles, three homers and 20 RBI. "He rolled out of bed hot", Ausmus said. In his last start, he allowed two earned runs on seven hits and two walks over 5 2/3 innings Saturday against the Angels.

Killing them softly: Center fielder Adam Jones' home run in the fifth inning, which at the time put the Orioles ahead, 4-3, was nearly robbed at the wall by left fielder Justin Upton.

Davis' 18th career multi-homer game allowed Baltimore (23-14) to survive a 5-hour, 19-minute marathon in which it squandered leads of six and three runs.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Aaron Hicks hit a three-run homer to cap a five-run fourth inning and NY had 16 hits to roll to a win.

Danny Duffy picked up first victory since April 14, and Mike Moustakas belted a three-run homer as Kansas City defeated NY.

A mental mistake by Davis allowed the first run to score in the first inning.

Alex Avila added an RBI double that inning to make it 6-4.

The Orioles have lost six of seven, although all six of those defeats were by one run.

"Seems like every time we do something offensively, we go out there and give it back up", Baltimore manager Buck Showalter said. Stroman homered to right-center field in the third inning and was all smiles circling the bases. "Seems like we're always trying to dig ourselves out of a hole". He was able to stay in the game. He was placed on the paternity list after the game and will miss the weekend series against the Texas Rangers.

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. He'll face Miami left-hander Justin Nicolino (0-0, 1.50).
