Miguel Cabrera was a late scratch from Detroit's starting lineup Wednesday night against Baltimore because of a sore left side. Baltimore manager Buck Showalter brought in Brad Brach, but J.D. Martinez drove a 3-1 delivery over the right-center wall to give Detroit an 8-7 lead.

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.

It was a day for hitting home runs. The Orioles took advantage of this environment had three home runs of their own. "He rolled out of bed hot", Ausmus said. Martinez is working on five-days rest after allowing three runs on seven hits in six innings Saturday against the Athletics.

Jose Iglesias' double and Nicholas Castellanos' infield hit preceded J.D. Martinez's one-out, three-run shot into the Orioles bullpen, tying the game at 3-3 in the third.

"If you're really watching the game you might say, 'Oh man, he's hitting the ball hard, but zero results.' At the end of the day, if you're hitting.150, .180, people are going to say 'You're struggling, ' or 'Move him down, " Martinez siad. Dylan Bundy was tagged for six runs in six frames as he fell to 5-and-2. He got in trouble early in the third inning, though.

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.

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. "It seems like we're always trying to dig ourselves out of a hole".

Alex Avila added an RBI double that inning to make it 6-4.

The Tigers announced they'll play a split doubleheader at home July 1 against Cleveland. He was able to stay in the game.

Martinez will miss the Tigers weekend series against the red-hot Texas Rangers as he heads home to Orlando, Florida to be with his wife, who is going to be giving birth to their fourth child.
