J.D. Martinez homer lifts Tigers to 6-2 win over Astros

DETROIT (AP) Alfredo Simon doesn't overpower opposing hitters, as much as he confuses them.

Using an assortment of pitches that included a curveball that didn't even register on the Comerica Park radar gun, Simon allowed two unearned runs in seven innings as the Detroit Tigers beat the Houston Astros 6-2 on Friday night.

"I think today was really good," Simon said. "This is a park for pitching, because when I get behind in the count, I know I can throw a fastball, and even if they hit a fly ball, it's not easy to hit for a home run."
