Saltalamacchia's homer helps Tigers over Astros 5-3

Jarrod Saltalamacchia hit a go-ahead two-run homer in the sixth inning and the Detroit Tigers rallied for a 5-3 win over the Houston Astros on Saturday night.

Detroit trailed 3-0 after George Springer and Tyler White both homered off Justin Verlander (1-1) in the first inning. Detroit scored a run in the second and cut the lead to 1 in the fifth when White was charged with an error after a throw busted through the webbing of his glove, allowing another run to score.

There was one out in the sixth when Saltalamacchia connected against Collin McHugh (1-2), launching his two-strike shot off the foul pole in right field to make it 4-3. Victor Martinez added an insurance run with an RBI double in the ninth inning.
