Martinez to a broken elbow. Martinez left the game in the second inning after crashing into the right-field wall in pursuit of a drive hit by Royals right fielder Paulo Orlando. Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said after the game that Martinez is expected to miss four to six weeks. The Tigers placed Martinez on the 15-day disabled list and said it will recall outfielder Steven Moya from Triple-A Toledo on Friday to replace him on the 25-man roster. Moya, 24, was batting .298/.326/.571 at Toledo, with 13 home runs and 38 RBIs in 50 games. Had it not been for Detroit's Martinez duo, Thursday would have been all about Rangers pitcher Colby Lewis. The 36-year-old right-hander had a perfect game going in the eighth inning in Oakland. He issued a two-out walk, but entered the ninth with his no-hitter intact. But Max Muncy hit a leadoff double in the ninth as Rangers right fielder Nomar Mazara reached the ball and the wall at the same time and was unable to make the catch. Two hitters later, Coco Crisp got the A's on the board with a blooper to left field that popped out of the glove of a diving Ryan Rua. Lewis still finished with a complete-game two-hitter in a 5-1 victory. Player of the dayVictor Martinez, DH, Tigers — The Royals had the blue light specials for V-Mart, who blasted three home runs (all solo shots) against the reigning World Series champs. At 37, Martinez is the oldest Tigers player to hit three homers in a game since Ty Cobb did it in 1925 at age 39. This was the second three-homer game of Martinez's 14-year career. He also became the first Tiger to homer from both sides of the plate in a game since Carlos Guillen did it on Sept. 23, 2009, at Cleveland. HighlightsThe best catch in Thursday's slate of 10 games was made in Philadelphia, but it didn't happen on the field. A dad in the stands made a bare-handed, one-handed grab of a foul ball while holding his daughter. Three things to know— The Twins will be without closer Glen Perkins for the remainder of the season. Perkins, who has made just two appearances this year, has a torn labrum and rotator cuff problems in his pitching shoulder that will likely require surgery, according to the Minneapolis Star Tribune. Perkins has been on the disabled list since early April. Losing Perkins, who has been an All-Star each of the past three seasons, is a big blow to the struggling Twins' bullpen. Several candidates, including Brandon Kintzler, Fernando Abad and Trevor May, are in line to serve as Minnesota's closer after fill-in closer Kevin Jepsen lost the job recently.  — Dodgers left-hander Scott Kazmir has now faced all 30 major league teams in his 12-year career after starting against the Brewers on Thursday. Kazmir lasted just four innings after the Brewers touched him up for three runs on five hits. Kazmir did strike out eight batters, but also walked two. He took a no-decision. Jonathan Villar hit a two-run homer in the top of the ninth to lift the Brewers to an 8-6 victory. — Mets pitcher Bartolo Colon, the majors' active wins leader, picked up career victory No. 224 in New York's 6-4 triumph over the Pirates. The win ties the 43-year-old Colon, who also legged out a double, with Hall of Famers Jim Bunning and Catfish Hunter on the all-time wins list. Colon struck out eight while allowing just two runs over 7 2/3 innings, but his double was all the rage. What's nextPirates (33-33) at Cubs (44-20), 2:20 p.m. ET  — If the Pirates are going to gain any ground on the Cubs in the NL Central, the best way is to beat the Cubs head-to-head. It sure won't be easy against baseball's best team, which owns a 22-8 record at Wrigley Field. The Bucs will hope Francisco Liriano (4-6, 4.92 ERA) can somehow outduel the dominant Jake Arrieta (10-1, 1.86).White Sox (33-33) at Indians (35-30), 7:10 p.m. ET  — Like the Pirates, the White Sox are a .500 team on the road against the Central Division leader. Unlike the Pirates, the White Sox are only 2 1/2 games back of the Tribe. If the White Sox are going to get closer, they need Jose Quintana (5-7, 2.66) to break his personal six-game losing streak. The Indians will give the ball to Trevor Bauer (4-2, 3.69).
