JD Martinez: JD Martinez hits fifth homer in win

Detroit Tigers vs. Baltimore Orioles- 5/16/17 MLB Pick Odds and Prediction

"He's right up there with J.D.", manager Brad Ausmus said of Bell's four-inning performance Wednesday, likening it to the two home runs hit by J.D. Martinez in the game.

Almost all of the damage against Bundy was dealt in two swings by people named Martinez. Iglesias went to third on an infield single by third baseman Nicholas Castellanos, and watched them all score on a three-run home run by right fielder J.D. All of those runs came in the third inning.

J.D. Martinez homered twice for the Tigers, including a grand slam that put them up 8-7 in the seventh.

Alex Avila, who is likely going to see a lot more playing time with Miguel Cabrera out, is still sensational, hitting.377/.479/.672, and extended his hitting streak to three games, two of those multi-hit games. "At least that's what I look for and expect of him, to be able to go through a stretch where he's going to be pitching well start in and start out".

The Orioles led 7-1 after scoring seven runs in the third, but they squandered that big advantage and needed Mark Trumbo's solo shot with two outs in the ninth just to force extra innings. Not only does Martinez have five homers in six games since coming off the disabled list, but he's walked a remarkable nine times.

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. It still counted - the sixth of the year.

Marquez (2-2) gave up one run on four hits and a walk to win his second straight start. Hopefully he'll be OK soon. Blaine Hardy came on, gave up a home run to Seth Smith, and was promptly relieved by Shane Greene.

The Tigers still had runners on first and second and one out.

Blue Jays' Jay Biagini goes five strong in a win over Seattle
The Cleveland Indians are looking for another series victory tonight in Toronto after a 6-0 win over the Blue Jays Tuesday night. Liriano struggled to start the season with the Pirates past year , and was eventually traded to the Toronto Blue Jays.

Still, it wasn't really the offense's fault that the game was lost. "You don't enjoy one like that unless you win it". His best season was in 2015 when he hit 38 home runs and drove in 102. Today wasn't his day. Like I said, I'd thrown one in the past, but this was the first game this year I've thrown it in.

A long reliever who can get you through rough patches from your starting rotation, without annihilating the rest of your bullpen is an invaluable resource, for all that they're generally considered the 24th or 25th man on the squad.

Even though the Tigers do feature a lot of offensive talent, the lineup still isn't almost as formidable without Cabrera serving as an anchor in the middle.

"It felt good. There were a few good ones, a few bad ones, but I think it's something that, if I keep working on, it could be a good pitch, especially to lefties".

Kershaw (7-2) struck out five in seven shutout innings and retired the first 10 batters he faced before Justin Ruggiano's fourth-inning single. That's more depressing than I expected.

Ubaldo Jimenez (1-2) allowed five runs in five innings. Manny Pina hit a two-run double to cap the five-run inning. The Orioles had only six on the roster Tuesday and used them all. They are putting up 4.5 runs per game while allowing 4.22.

The Orioles say Machado has a sore finger. MASN's Roch Kubatko said Machado suffered the discomfort while fouling off a couple of pitches in Wednesday's game.
