Running Wild With the Pirates: Tigers 13 Pirates 10

Leonys Martin grimaces after being hit by a foul ball in the first inning of the first game of a double header against the Pittsburgh Pirates in Pittsburgh Wednesday

Osuna, recalled from Triple-A Indianapolis, hit a three-run homer in the second and singled and scored in the seventh. DeJong went 3-for-8 for with two doubles, one RBI, and three runs scored in the first two contests against NY.

Nova, who forced 13 groundball outs, allowed just six hits, no walks and struck out five in his longest outing since last May. The Tigers were able to add him due to a rule that allows a 26th player n the roster for doubleheaders. Although the Tigers' offense stayed hot in a 13-10 win in the opener of Wednesday's double-header, Pittsburgh cooled off Detroit's lineup in an 8-3 win in the nightcap. Candelario is slashing.290/.359/.548 with four home runs, 11 RBIs and 13 runs scored, while Cabrera (.329/.416/.513) is up to two homers, 16 RBIs and 12 runs scored. He allowed three runs, six hits and one walk in improving to 3-0 lifetime against Detroit. Cervelli is hitting.292/.390/.554 with three home runs, 18 RBIs and eight runs scored, while Marte's line is.280/.368/.473 with three homers, 10 RBIs, 18 runs and seven stolen bases. His two-run double in the eighth pulled the Pirates within 12-10.

Corey Dickerson also had three hits for Pittsburgh, and Moran homered. Chad Kuhl earned the victory in game two, allowing three earned runs over six innings.

Daniel Stumpf (1-0) retired all four batters he faced for his first major league win. Both teams got after it pretty good.

Castellanos' two-run shot off Kyle Crick capped a five-run fourth inning and gave the Tigers an 8-6 lead.

Pittsburgh (-135) is favored over Detroit (+125) and Vegas has set the Over/Under for this game at 8 runs (+100 for the over and -120 for the under).

Marte doubled in a run in the fifth to push the lead to 5-3. Shane Greene pitched a 1-2-3 ninth for his fourth save in six opportunities.

The two teams wrap up their series today at 12:35 p.m. Michael Fulmer (1-2) will pitch for Detroit against Pittsburgh's Ian Nova (2-1). He needed about five minutes to regroup before hitting a drive to straightaway center.

"This has been the most challenging weather I've ever been a part of, and I'm not playing", said Hurdle, who spent a decade in the majors as a player from 1977-87 before going into coaching. He expressed that to me, right from the start. Don't even think about it. All nine of their wins have come from teams - Royals, White Sox, and Orioles - that are collectively 30 games under.500 to start the season.

Pirates: RHP Joe Musgrove (strained right shoulder) threw a 38-pitch simulated game.

Nova is 2-0 in his past three starts but, like Fulmer, is coming off a strong outing with a no-decision to show for it because of a lack of run support.
