Martinez (1-1) allowed a run and eight hits, and Adrian Beltre and Donnie Murphy homered for Texas. The Rangers scored four runs in the fourth, plus three each in the sixth and seventh.

Rick Porcello (7-2) had won his last six starts before being knocked around by Texas. He allowed eight runs and 12 hits in 5 1-3 innings.

Detroit has lost five of six.

Leonys Martin, Murphy and Odor - the last three hitters in the Texas batting order - combined for eight hits, eight RBIs and seven runs. Odor had four hits after going 6 for 31 in his first 11 games.
