DETROIT -- Victor Martinezs home run gave Detroit another big boost in the late innings.Martinez hit a tiebreaking homer in the eighth, and the Tigers beat Baltimore 4-3 on Friday night, pulling even with the Orioles for the American Leagues second wild card. It was another tight, tense victory for Detroit, which has won five consecutive one-run games since late August.The back end of bullpens are usually some of the best arms in the game, manager Brad Ausmus said. We dont give up against them.Michael Fulmer pitched seven solid innings, and the Tigers won despite blowing a 3-0 lead. The Orioles tied it in the eighth when Adam Jones hit an RBI single, but Martinez led off the bottom half with a drive to right-center field off reliever Brad Brach (8-3).Alex Wilson (3-0) got the win even after allowing the tying run in the eighth. Francisco Rodriguez pitched a perfect ninth for his 40th save in 44 chances. He is tied with Baltimores Zach Britton for the AL lead in saves.The Orioles fell three games behind first-place Boston in the AL East.The last Detroit starter to win a game was Justin Verlander on Aug. 26. Since then, the Tigers have been able to keep pace by pulling out close games late. Fridays victory was no exception.This was a great game between two teams that are trying to get into the postseason, and we just came up a little short, Baltimore starter Kevin Gausman said. Ive pitched in the playoffs, and thats what it felt like tonight.Gausman allowed three runs and seven hits in six innings. He struck out seven and walked two.J.D. Martinez hit a two-run single in the fifth to give Detroit a 3-0 lead, but Jonathan Schoop hit a two-run homer the following inning to start Baltimores comeback.Gausman hadnt allowed a run in his previous three outings, but that streak came to an end when Erick Aybar hit an RBI double in the second. The right-hander got out of a jam in the third when right fielder Mark Trumbo threw Ian Kinsler out at the plate to end the inning.J.D. Martinez delivered with two outs and the bases loaded in the fifth to give the Tigers a three-run lead.Detroit left fielder Justin Upton reached up at the wall in the third to take a possible homer away from Hyun Soo Kim.Upton and Miguel Cabrera struck out three times each.PLENTY LEFTFulmer allowed two runs and three hits against Baltimores powerful lineup. The rookie right-hander struck out five and walked one.He is up to 143 2/3 innings for the Tigers this year. Detroit has tried to manage his workload, and this was an encouraging start after he had lost three straight.It felt playoff atmosphere -- if I knew what it felt like, Fulmer said. I got pumped up there, the later I went in the game.WRONG DIRECTIONBrach has a 3.98 ERA since the All-Star break. It was 0.91 before the break.Manager Buck Showalter wasnt putting the blame on the reliever for this game, however.Victor Martinez is a great hitter, Showalter said. You can make a perfect pitch to him, and end up with exactly that result.TRAINERS ROOMOrioles: Showalter said RHP Darren ODay (right rotator cuff) might throw a simulated game soon. He said OF Joey Rickard (right thumb ligament) hit Thursday, and RHP Chris Tillman (right shoulder) threw Friday.Tigers: 3B Nick Castellanos (left hand) said in the clubhouse before the game his goal is to be back before Sept. 18.UP NEXTOrioles: RHP Ubaldo Jimenez (6-11) takes the mound Saturday night against the Tigers. Hes coming off a two-hitter at Tampa Bay in his last start.Tigers: RHP Jordan Zimmermann (9-5) returns to the mound for his second start since June and first since Aug. 4. Hes battled neck problems for much of the season.---Follow Noah Trister at www.Twitter.com/noahtrister Custom Grizzlies Jerseys .

Lions has come to an end. Banks told TSN on Jan 2 that he had no interest in playing out the option year of his contract with the Lions in 2014, and he again made that clear in a conversation with Lions GM Wally Buono last week. http://www.customgrizzliesjersey.com/ . -- Jakob Silfverberg is making himself right at home with the Anaheim Ducks, scoring four goals in his first four games.

Ellis hit two-run homers and the NL West champion Los Angeles Dodgers defeated the San Diego Padres 4-0 Saturday night. TORONTO -- The San Diego Padres did not win Monday night in the first game they have ever played at Rogers Centre.They took a 4-2 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays but they did hit a home run, a mammoth two-run shot by Alex Dickerson in the ninth inning that reached the 500 level.It was the 23rd game in a row in which the Padres have hit at least one home run, the longest such streak in the majors this season and the longest in club history.The streak is nice but the Padres would like to win as well.The streak is a fun thing to keep track of but realistically well take a win with a bunch of singles, said Dickerson, who has four home runs in 29 games with the Padres.It was the sixth loss in the first eight games of a 10-game road trip for the Padres. They play the final two games of the trip Tuesday and Wednesday against Blue Jays.Outfielder Melvin Upton Jr. did not start Monday for the Padres for the second game in a row amid trade speculation involving the Blue Jays, Baltimore Orioles and Cleveland Indians.Obviously, its been two days, Padres manager Andy Green said. Its somewhat unusual. Hes completely healthy, hes ready to go, hes available. Theres nothing done at this point in time. Just decisions being made that he has a couple days off right now.The Padres are scheduled to start right-hander Andrew Cashner (4-7, 4.79 ERA) on Tuesday. Cashner also is involved in trade rumors.The way the Blue Jays are constructed, it seems logical that they need pitching. The bullpen could be improved. That would be accomplished by moving Aaron Sanchez (11-1, 2.72 ERA) there to limit his innings in his first full season as a major league starter. That would leave a huge hole in the rotation that would presumably need to be filled in a trade.Meanwhile, tthe Blue Jays got right fielder Jose Bautista back in the lineup Monday after he had been out since injuring his left big toe on June 16 in Philadelphia.ddddddddddddHe likes the team the Blue Jays have.We have a great team, Bautista said Monday. I dont see the necessity to do anything.The Blue Jays will start right-hander Marcus Stroman (8-4, 4.90 ERA) on Tuesday.Stroman has been inconsistent this season but had a good start Wednesday against the Arizona Diamondbacks, allowing eight hits, one walk and one run in eight innings. He struck out six in Torontos 10-4 win. In his past nine starts, beginning June 4, he is 3-3 with a 5.50 ERA. The team is 3-6 in those starts. He has never faced the Padres.Cashner will be making his 16th start of the season when he faces the Blue Jays for the first time in his career. He did not factor into the decision Thursday when he went 5 2/3 innings, allowing three hits and one run while striking out eight, in a 6-5 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals. He has 17 strikeouts and no walks over his past two starts.Like the rest of the games leading to the July 31 deadline for trades without waivers, the Padres and Blue Jays will play Tuesday with the possibility of a deal or deals looming in the background. The Blue Jays used deadline deals to their advantage last year to win the American League East.Nobody can tell the future, but were definitely capable of winning just as many games, if not more (than in 2015), Bautista said I think were capable of being a playoff team again, and after that its just how you play in the postseason. We have what it takes. Its just a matter of execution. ' ' '
