MLB roundup: Both Martinezes homer in Tigers win

Sports Xchange - Friday 19th May, 2017

DETROIT -- 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.

Victor Martinez's long ball in the fifth erased a 4-3 deficit. Manager Brad Ausmus said Victor Martinez would be placed on the paternity list after the game and miss the weekend series against the Texas Rangers. He will return to Orlando, Fla., for the birth of his fourth child.

J.D. Martinez's homer was his third of the three-game series, as the Tigers took two out of three from the Orioles.

Jordan Zimmermann (4-2) pitched six innings and got the win despite giving up four runs, including two home runs. Zimmermann has allowed 10 homers in his last five starts.

Chris Davis, Adam Jones and Seth Smith homered for the Orioles. Losing pitcher Dylan Bundy (5-2) gave up six runs on eight hits in six innings.

Pirates 10, Nationals 4

PITTSBURGH -- Adam Frazier had a career-high four RBIs and Josh Bell homered for the fourth time in six games as Pittsburgh beat Washington.

Frazier was 3-for-4 with two singles and a double. John Jaso added a solo homer for Pittsburgh.

The Pirates pounded out 13 hits against four Nationals pitchers. They have won four of their past five games and took two of the three in the series with Washington.

Rockies 5, Twins 1

MINNEAPOLIS -- Nolan Arenado homered and German Marquez pitched five strong innings as Colorado continued its success on the road with a win in the first game of a split doubleheader.

Marquez (2-2) gave up one run on four hits and a walk to win his second straight start. Mark Reynolds added a two-run single for Colorado, which won its 13th road game of the season. The Rockies are tied for second in the majors in road wins behind Houston's 15 and trail only Houston in overall wins this season with 26 victories.

Greg Holland picked up his 18th save in as many chances.

Minnesota's Ervin Santana (6-2) allowed more than one run for just the second time this season and saw his ERA rise from a league-leading 1.50 to 2.07, third in the AL.
