After being held scoreless on three hits over the first eight innings, the Tigers used a reversed call to win. Detroit was 0-12 when trailing going into the ninth before mounting the improbable comeback.

Hunter held a 1-0 lead before giving up a leadoff single to Alex Avila. Pinch-runner Rajai Davis was called out trying to steal, but Detroit manager Brad Ausmus challenged the call and it was overtuned on replay.

Hunter (1-1) got two straight outs before working the count on Torii Hunter to 1-2. The at-bat ended in a walk, and Cabrera hit an 0-1 curveball over the center-field wall for his sixth home run.

Victor Martinez then hit a shot to right that landed on Eutaw Street beyond the scoreboard in right field.

Justin Miller (1-1) pitched one inning to earn his first big league win and Joe Nathan got three outs for his ninth save.

Adam Jones hit a first-inning homer for the Orioles, who have dropped three in a row following a five-game winning streak.

MINNEAPOLIS • Chris Parmelee hit a game-ending homer in the ninth inning and Minnesota overcame David Ortiz’s big night to beat Boston.

Ortiz went 4 for 5 with two homers and four RBIs, but it wasn’t enough.

Kurt Suzuki singled with two outs off reliever Andrew Miller (1-1) before Parmelee lined an 0-1 pitch into the right-field seats for his first two RBIs of the season.

Eduardo Nunez homered and Brian Dozier had two RBIs in a five-run second for the Twins.

Ortiz hit solo homers in the first and fourth and is tied with Jim Rice on the Red Sox list with 382. It was the 42nd multihomer game for Big Papi, who began his career with the Twins.

Ortiz added an RBI single in the sixth and another one in the seventh that made it 6-5.

Glen Perkins (1-0) pitched the ninth, striking out Ortiz and Mike Napoli to strand Shane Victorino at first base.

RAYS 2, MARINERS 1

SEATTLE • David Price struck out 12 in his second complete game this season and Tampa Bay rallied in the ninth inning against Seattle closer Fernando Rodney.

Mariners starter Hisashi Iwakuma shut out the Rays on four hits for eight innings before giving way to Rodney. David DeJesus led off the ninth with a tying homer, and Rodney (1-2) gave up a go-ahead RBI single to Matt Joyce five batters later.

Price (4-3) gave up six hits and kept the Mariners off balance most of the night. Eight of his strikeouts came on called third strikes.
