Tigers 7, Rangers 0

ARLINGTON, Texas — Michael Fulmer pitched a four-hitter in Detroit's second straight shutout of Texas, and Victor Martinez and J.D. Martinez homered among three hits apiece. Fulmer became the first Tigers rookie to throw a complete-game shutout since Justin Verlander 10 years ago. The 23-year-old right-hander retired 16 of the last 17 hitters he faced as the Tigers kept the Rangers scoreless over the final 21 innings of the three-game series. Victor Martinez started the scoring with a two-run shot in the fourth, and J.D. Martinez hit his 100th career homer.
