Recap


Victor Martinez singled in the game-winning run in the bottom of the 11th to lift the Detroit Tigers to a 4-3 victory over the visiting Baltimore Orioles on Friday.

Miguel Cabrera homered among three hits for the Tigers, who remained tied with the Rangers for the second-best record in the American League. Texas defeated Seattle 5-3 on Friday.

Willie Eyre (2-2) began his second inning of relief in the 11th and walked pinch-hitter Brandon Inge to open the frame. Eyre got Delmon Young to foul out but yielded a single to Cabrera before being replaced by Zach Phillips.

Martinez greeted Phillips with a single through the left side, plating pinch runner Danny Worth with the winning run.

Ryan Perry (1-0) worked a scoreless frame to grab the win.

Detroit held a 2-1 lead after the first inning, when Cabrera came up with a runner on third and belted a 96-mph fastball on the inside corner into the left field seats for his 27th homer.

Baltimore came back to regain the lead with a pair of runs in the third but the Tigers knotted it again at 3-3 when Ramon Santiago singled off Alfredo Simon, scoring Jhonny Peralta.
