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

MWC RADIO

DETROIT (AP) - Chris Davis homered in the 12th inning and again in the 13th.

Justin Wilson allowed two baserunners in the ninth but retired Adam Jones and Manny Machado for his third save in four chances. Martinez popped a homer with three RBI and two runs on Thursday, while Castellanos logged a hit and a run. "You don't enjoy one like that unless you win it".

Moustakas hit his team-leading 10th home run with Drew Butera and Alcides Escobar aboard in the fifth off rookie Jordan Montgomery (2-3).

Richard Bleier (1-1) earned his first career win, pitching the final 1 2/3 innings for the Orioles. But getting through six, that's huge for our bullpen.

The Tigers announced they'll play a split doubleheader at home July 1 against Cleveland. Victor Martinez is hitting.270 to lead the starters.

Ubaldo Jimenez (1-2) allowed five runs in five innings. Collins is mired in an 0-for-30 slump, and Detroit didn't have any position players left to pinch hit.

With the wind swirling on a warm day at Comerica Park, manager Buck Showalter said he was surprised more balls didn't go out. "That's a great win".

"All in all, the guys have handled the challenge pretty good, but we had a tough spell here on this trip", Showalter said.

"And when you get in those stretches where everything clicks, you put together a really good streak". Instead of trying for a 3-6-3 double play, Davis stepped on the bag and looked toward the runner heading for home.

The Tigers lost 13-11 in 13 innings Tuesday.

Alex Avila replaced Cabrera at first base, and J.D. Martinez moved up three spots to hit third in the batting order.

Even with the six runs allowed, Bundy was efficient for most of the day. Baltimore used three singles to score another run in the second, with Smith delivering the RBI hit.

The worst case scenario for Tigers fans is if the team continues this up and down roller coaster they are on and they begin to fall out of playoff contention in July, then you can bet that the J.D. Martinez trade rumors will heat up. He has made just one appearance against the Tigers, a 1 1/3-inning relief stint.

Now, the question is, who will manager Brad Ausmus decide to use a DH for the upcoming series with the Rangers? "He threw a harder slider today". He's hit a few home runs here lately, but he's hitting balls in the gaps. Castillo missed 14 games with right shoulder tendinitis. "He doesn't feel it on those movements with this, so we're optimistic it'll just be two to three days". As for Norris, he did give up four earned in Oakland but otherwise has allowed just three earned in 11.2 innings in two starts.
