DETROIT -- Tyler Collins knows the clock is ticking on his stay in the major leagues. Nike Air Max Shoes 2017 China .With J.D Martinez nearing a return from a fractured elbow, Collins is trying to find ways to extend his stay beyond the next few days.Friday, he hit a three-run homer in the second inning, then tripled and scored in the fifth as the Detroit Tigers beat the Houston Astros 14-6.Thats what you dream about at night -- having a big game and getting the offense off and rolling, he said. Its good to be part of it.Collins started the season with the Tigers after Cameron Maybin broke his wrist, but was sent down in disgrace in late April. Not only was he hitting .100 with one extra-base hit, he made an obscene gesture at the fans after misplaying a fly ball.He didnt help himself by going to Triple-A Toledo and hitting .214, but when Martinez got hurt and Steven Moya couldnt handle the defensive responsibilities of right field, he got the call.Since his return, hes hitting .276 with three homers and eight RBI in nine games.The better he plays, the more we have to think about keeping him, Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said. Hes learning to slow the game down a little bit.Justin Upton and James McCann also homered, while Cameron Maybin had three hits and scored three times for the Tigers, who were coming off a three-game sweep at Fenway Park. Detroit moved a half-game behind Houston, with both chasing Boston for the second AL wild-card spot.The hot streak could turn the Tigers into buyers at the trade deadline.Lets put it this way -- it certainly doesnt help if we keep winning, Ausmus said. Theres no question about that.Houston got homers from Jose Altuve and Jake Marisnek, but lost for the third time in four games.Matt Boyd (2-2) picked up the win, allowing three runs on four hits in five innings. He walked one while striking out six. Boyd is 2-0 in his last three starts after going 0-2 in his first six.It was awesome to get that kind of offense, Boyd said. I was all over the place in the first two innings, but I ironed out the issues and got things fixed.Collin McHugh (7-7) went to the mound with a 2-0 lead, but didnt make it out of the second inning. He allowed eight runs on 10 hits while only retiring five batters.Thats obviously not a great way to start the game, said Astros manager A.J. Hinch said. We got the quick 2-0 lead, and then were down seven after the second. We battled all night, but thats a big hole.Boyd struck out George Springer to start the game, but Marwin Gonzalez doubled and Altuve lined his 18th homer into the right-field stands. Detroit, though, tied the game in the bottom of the inning on a sacrifice fly by Miguel Cabrera and an RBI single from Nick Castellanos.Maybins two-run double put the Tigers ahead 4-2 in the second, and Cabrera followed with a run-scoring single. Castellanos beat out a two-out infield single to score Cabrera with Detroits sixth run.They just never let me up for air, McHugh said. If I made a good pitch, they got a bat on it, and if I missed my spot at all, they hit it hard. That wasnt how I envisioned this game going.Chris Devenski replaced McHugh after Uptons single, and immediately allowed a three-run homer to Collins.The Tigers led 13-3 after seven, but the Astros scored three runs off Tigers mop-up relievers Mark Lowe and Dustin Molleken.TRAINERS ROOMAstros: 1B Gonzalez left the game with a sore right hand, but it isnt considered serious. ... Houston placed INF Luis Valbuena on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right hamstring and recalled INF Tyler White from Triple-A Fresno. ... CF Carlos Gomez did not start after leaving Wednesdays game with a strained hamstring. Hes expected to miss the entire weekend series in Detroit.Tigers: Martinez and RHP Jordan Zimmermann (neck) were both on rehab duty Friday with Triple-A Toledo. The Tigers are hoping to have both players back before the end of the current nine-game homestand.PATERNITY LEAVEAstros starting pitcher Doug Fister isnt with the team this weekend, as his wife is expected to give birth to the couples first child. Fister pitched for the Tigers from 2011-13.HOT STREAK ENDSMcHugh came into the night having posted a 2.49 ERA in his last seven starts, with the Astros going 6-1 in those games. The eight runs allowed tied a career record, last done on June 13, 2015 against Seattle.UP NEXTThe teams continue their three-game series Saturday evening, with Justin Verlander (10-6, 3.64) facing Mike Fiers (7-4, 4.69). Verlander is 3-0 in six career starts against Houston with a 2.06 ERA. Wholesale Air Max Shoes China . - Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco is not a fan of his teams use of the wildcat formation, saying "it makes you look like a high school offence. Cheap Air Max China 2017 .

The Bangladesh left-armer bowled 17 dot balls out of 24 and took two wickets, including Kings XIs top scorer Shaun Marsh (40 from 32 balls), to help the hosts contain their opponents to 143-6.David Warner (59 from 31) then cracked his fourth fifty of the tournament as Sunrisers breezed home with 13 balls to spare to join Kolkata Knight Riders, Gujarat Lions and Delhi Daredevils on six points and ensure Kings XI, beaten in four of their five games, remain rooted to the foot of the table.Kings XI were on the back-foot as early as the end of their powerplay, slipping to 35-2 after Murali Vijay (2) nicked off and Manan Vohra was run out by Shikhar Dhawan from cover for a bright 25.David Miller and Glenn Maxwell were then caught out in Moises Henriques 10th over - the latter now having gone 25 innings without an IPL fifty - leaving the visitors languishing on 65-4 at halfway.Marsh unleashed a few lusty blows before being trapped lbw by Mustafizur in the 14th over, with Axar Patel (36no from 17) and Nikhil Naik (22 from 28) - Mustafizurs other victim - swelling Kings XIs score late on with a stand of 50 from 35 balls. David Warner blasted his fourth IPL fifty of the season Kings XIs attack was nowhere near as frugal, with Warner and Dhawan (45) clubbing 65 in the powerplay and Warner usurping Royal Challengers Bangalores Virat Kohli as the tournaments leading run scorer. Cheap Air Max China.
