Tigers 5, Pirates 2: Why Detroit won Thursday at Comerica Park

Max Scherzer blanked the Pirates through five innings with 11 strikeouts. He got the lead in the bottom of the inning when J.D. Martinez led off with the Tigers' first hit, a homer to left off left-hander Francisco Liriano. Martinez's next two at-bats resulted in the game's next two runs: a bases-loaded walk in the sixth and a two-out infield hit in the eighth that second baseman Michael Martinez threw away, allowing a run to score.
