Davis homers twice in extra innings, Orioles outslug Tigers

Davis homers twice in extra innings, Orioles outslug Tigers”

Tigers' slugger Miguel Cabrera has a left oblique strain and might miss the entire series.

Baltimore Orioles' Chris Davis (19) is congratulated after his two-run home run during the 13th inning of a baseball game against the Detroit Tigers, Wednesday, May 17, 2017, in Detroit.

Now, the question is, who will manager Brad Ausmus decide to use a DH for the upcoming series with the Rangers?

Bundy, who had gone at least six innings in each of his first eight starts and had not allowed more than three runs in any of them, entered the game as the bastion of consistency on a staff struggling for it.

Jordan Zimmermann (4-2) pitched six innings and got the win despite giving up four runs, including two home runs.

Last Friday was the first time Tigers' right fielder J.D Martinez had played all season because of a sprained foot.

Cobb (4-3) allowed three runs and six hits. The 38-year-old Venezuelan is hitting.300 in his career with 229 homers and 1,098 RBIs in 1,769 games with the Cleveland Indians, Boston Red Sox and Tigers. Wood (4-0, 2.27) has been overpowering of late, striking out 21 over 11 scoreless innings in his past two starts.

On Thursday, J.D. Martinez cranked a three run home run off Bundy in the third inning, his only hit of the afternoon.

Freep Sports tweeted out a picture of the notes prior to the start of the Tigers' game against The Baltimore Orioles. After leaving the bases loaded twice in extra innings in a loss Tuesday night, Collins ended his 0-for-30 stretch with a solo homer in the second inning, then added a three-run shot in the fifth. They had some balls that would have been home runs in most parts in center field, too.

"It seems like every time we do something offensively, we go out there and kind of give it back up", manager Buck Showalter said. "Those shutdown innings haven't been there for us to get an opportunity to get back in the dugout and add on". Even with the Smith home run, 13 of their final 14 batters were retired to close out the game. Since coming off the disabled list, Martinez has hit.500 with five home runs and 11 driven in. Detroit made it 6-4 later in the inning on Avila's run-scoring double.

Camden Yards has always been a haven for the Orioles, though since they left there just over a week ago, the quality starting pitching that helped them to a league-leading start has been somewhere else entirely. He was able to stay in the game. Will the Tigers and J.D. Martinez agree on a contract extension?[Image by Duane Burleson/Getty Images] J.D. has already smashed four home-runs, including a grand slam, and collected hits in six of his 12 at-bats heading into last night's action against the Baltimore Orioles.
