The Baltimore Orioles scored two runs in the top of the 13th inning, and defeated the Detroit Tigers 13-11 last night. The Orioles had built an early lead by scoring seven runs off Matthew Boyd and Chad Bell in the third inning. Detroit came back, and took the lead on J.D. Martinez’ grand slam in the seventh – his second homer of the night. The O’s forced extra innings with a solo home run off closer Justin Wilson in the ninth. They were poised for a win after they scored three times off Blaine Hardy in the top of the 12th inning, but Detroit responded with three in the bottom of the inning to extend the game. Francisco Rodriguez pitched the 13th inning, and took the loss.


That series continues in Detroit tonight. Michael Fulmer will start against Ubaldo Jiménez. Pregame coverage will begin at 7:45 on AM 1400 and FM 99.3, WCCY.
