J.D. Martinez saves Tigers against Mets

Posted: Updated:

DETROIT (AP) -- J.D. Martinez threw Jay Bruce out at the plate on the final play of the game, enabling the Detroit Tigers to hold on for a pulsating 6-5 victory over the New York Mets on Saturday night. New York trailed 6-1 before rallying with two runs each in the fifth and seventh, and with men on first and second and two out in the ninth,

Travis d'Arnaud poked a single into right field. Martinez charged the ball, and his one-hop throw home was in time to get Bruce.

Miguel Cabrera drove in three runs for the Tigers, who have won 10 of 11 and trail AL Central-leading Cleveland by two games.

Detroit's Matt Boyd (3-2) allowed three runs and six hits in five innings, and New York's Logan Verrett (3-7) yielded six runs and seven hits in 3 2/3 innings. Martinez's throw gave Francisco Rodriguez his 32nd save in 34 chances.
