Detroit Tigers' Miguel Cabrera (oblique) out two to three days

Detroit Tigers' Miguel Cabrera (oblique) out two to three days

J.D. Martinez's solo home run in the third inning, off starter Wade Miley, followed a two-run home run by Victor Martinez that cut the deficit to three, 7-4.

Tigers starting pitchers have allowed the fourth-most runs in the American League, and their 91 walks issued is just two fewer than the league lead.

Fulmer has been dominant through two May outings, collecting a pair of road wins against Oakland and the Los Angeles Angels while allowing a total of two earned runs and 11 hits while striking out 16 over 15 innings. Justin Wilson has the electric stuff to handle the closer's role and Alex Wilson has been almost flawless in the eighth inning. The problem with that is it may run counter to GM Al Avila's stated goal of lowering the team's long-term payroll outlook. This was the ninth homer of the year for Davis. The two teams split the first two games, then on Thursday Detroit eked out a 6-5 win. He's issued 25 walks in 48.1 innings and has a WHIP of 1.43. They did their job against struggling starter Jordan Zimmermann, who ended up giving up four runs on seven hits in six innings. Castillo missed 14 games with right shoulder tendinitis.

J.D. Martinez's big week isn't done yet.

Bundy has yielded only 13 runs for the season, nine during his six-start unbeaten streak, and is the only Baltimore starter to pitch past the fifth inning in the past six games. The teams had a game postponed May 4.

Cobb (4-3) allowed three runs and six hits.

Clayton Richard allowed six runs and 10 hits in six innings and Wil Myers homered for San Diego. The Martinezes - or "Martinii" as Mario Impemba called them - were responsible for a combined five RBIs.

Removal of Jefferson Davis statue sparks pre-dawn protests in New Orleans
The Liberty Place monument was taken down without advance notice in the dead of night by workers in masks and body armor. The statue of Jefferson Davis is removed from its base in New Orleans as police officers stand watch early Thursday.


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. Instead of trying for a 3-6-3 double play, Davis stepped on the bag and looked toward the runner heading for home.

The Orioles sent 11 men to the plate in their seven-run third.

The next time you think, "Well, it can't get any worse", remember the first month of the 2017 season. Boyd retired the next batter, but Adam Jones and Manny Machado hit back-to-back doubles. Trey Mancini's single off the back of reliever Chad Bell and Hardy's fielder's choice, which brought in another run, completed the outburst. Now, if they keep looking like garbage as they come back to face the last place Blue Jays in Baltimore and beyond, we're going to have to start having different conversations about the rest of the season.

Martinez now has five home runs in six games since returning from a almost eight-week stint on the disabled list on May 12.

The Orioles recalled right-hander Miguel Castro from Double-A Bowie and right-hander Stefan Crichton from Triple-A Norfolk.

All of that angst aside, the Orioles, at this moment, still have a.590 winning percentage, which would end up getting them to 95 or 96 wins at season's end - an easy win of the division in most years. Detroit RF Jim Adduci has not swung a bat or started running since he was placed on the 10-day disabled list. He's recovering from a strained oblique.

Hunter Renfroe hit his eighth home run of the season for San Diego.
