DETROIT -- Even when hes behind in the count, Victor Martinez is a tough hitter to face these days. "You cant set Victor Martinez up -- hes just too good at getting the barrel to the ball," Detroit manager Brad Ausmus said. "I dont think it matters what pitch you throw, hes generally going to find a way to do it." Martinez hit a solo homer in sixth inning and Miguel Cabrera also went deep for the Tigers, who won their eighth straight game Wednesday night, 3-2 over the Houston Astros. Martinezs homer came on an 0-2 pitch, when Astros starter Brad Peacock tried to throw a high fastball past the designated hitter. "I have no idea how Victor Martinez even hit that pitch," Houston manager Bo Porter said. "That was up in his eyes and, he not only got a bat on it, he knocked it out of the park." Martinez extended his hitting streak to 10 games, and Rick Porcello (5-1) allowed two runs and seven hits in 6 2-3 innings for the surging Tigers, who remained five games ahead of the second-place Chicago White Sox in the AL Central. Porcello struck out five and walked two. Even Detroits maligned bullpen looked impressive Wednesday. Joba Chamberlain got four outs in relief, striking out the side in the eighth. Joe Nathan pitched the ninth for his seventh save in nine chances. He struck out two, getting Matt Dominguez swinging with a man on third to preserve the win. Houston has lost five straight and seven of eight. Peacock (0-3) allowed three runs and four hits in 6 2-3 innings. He struck out four and walked four. After a slow start, Cabrera is again swinging the bat with authority for the Tigers. After homering in a four-hit, four-RBI performance Tuesday night, he stepped to the plate with a man on Wednesday and lifted a drive to deep right. Houstons George Springer tried valiantly to make the catch at the wall, but the ball nicked off his glove and went over, and the outfielder fell to the ground. It was Cabreras fourth homer of the year. Porcello allowed a run in the third when Marwin Gonzalez doubled and eventually scored on Dexter Fowlers groundout, but the Detroit infield turned double plays in the fifth and sixth to help the 25-year-old right-hander. In the fifth, Gonzalez was on first and took off toward second when Jose Altuve hit a grounder up the middle. Detroit second baseman Ian Kinsler, in the area because of the steal attempt, simply picked up the ball, stepped on the bag and threw to first for the double play. Martinez homered to right to make it 3-1. It was his sixth home run of the season, and hes now hitting .318 with only five strikeouts all year. With two strikes on him, Martinez was ready for a fastball. "I was looking high fastball," Martinez said. "As soon as I saw it, I was making sure that I get on top." Houston answered with a run in the seventh, chasing Porcello. Marc Krauss hit a two-out double, Dominguez followed with a single, and Gonzalez singled to drive in Krauss. Chamberlain came on and retired Altuve with men on first and second to end that threat. The big reliever then struck out three in the eighth. "Brad was the first one on the stairs and said, You got the eighth," Chamberlain said. "I figured after we got out of the (seventh) that was going to be the case. Just prepare, look up and see whos going to be coming up for their lineup, and kind of a mental plan of what you want to do. It worked out." Nathan entered in the ninth and allowed a two-out walk to Krauss. Pinch-runner Jonathan Villar stole second and third, but Dominguez went down swinging to end it.

Signs of a turnaround have emerged in this series at Minnesota. Brian Roberts had three doubles and a triple for the first four-extra-base-hit game of his 14-year career, and the Yankees used their bullpen to preserve a 6-5 win over the Twins on Friday. Wholesale Nuggets Jerseys . The 10-year deal the league and players agreed to that ended the 2011 lockout gave either side the right to opt out after six years. With the league projecting financial growth, there has been speculation that players will take that option in three years, especially since a new national TV contract will be in place by then.The head of the Slovenian Football Association has formally entered the race to replace Michel Platini as president of European footballs governing body UEFA. Aleksander Ceferin, a practising lawyer, has been canvassing support throughout Europe over the last few weeks and is now backed by 22 of the 55 member associations.Thirteen of those countries were confirmed at a meeting of football associations from south-east Europe that was hosted by Russian sports minister Vitaly Mutko in Moscow. That follows recent statements of support from Scandinavia and Italy and Ceferin said: Getting support from our neighbours is very good and very encouraging.But I dont just want to speak for one region - so I was really pleased to hear that the Scandinavians and Italians have come out for me and I want to speak to the others too.I dont like it when it is north against south, or east versus west. I will speak to everybody. Ceferin (right) has seen his stock rise in European football circles in recent years and he is viewed as a consensus-builder Ceferin became president of the Slovenian FA (NZS) in 2011, having served on the board of Olimpija Ljubljana, one of the countrys biggest clubs, for five years by that point.His stockk has been rising in European football circles in recent years and he is viewed as a consensus-builder.ddddddddddddPerhaps crucially, he also has no connection to the various scandals that have dogged football politics for years.Mutko, who is also president of the Russian Football Union, is the latest heavyweight to get behind Ceferins candidacy, joining all the ex-Yugoslav republics, the Balkans, Cyprus, Greece and Turkey.The support of Greece would seem to suggest UEFAs acting general secretary Theodore Theodoridis will not be running. The election to replace Michel Platini as UEFA president will be held in Athens on September 14 That leaves veteran duo Michael van Praag of the Netherlands and Spanish football chief Angel Maria Villar as Ceferins most likely rivals.He said it was too early to talk about his ideas for the job but said UEFA is a good organisation that perhaps needs to freshen up a little when speaking in Moscow.Candidates for the presidency must declare their intentions to stand July 20 and the election will be in Athens on September 14.
