Travis Snider hit two home runs, and Starling Marte drove in three runs as the Pittsburgh Pirates coasted to a 11-6 win against the Detroit Tigers on Monday night.
Pittsburgh loaded the bases against Justin Verlander with one out in the first inning, and Marte cleared them with a triple down the left field line. Snider drove Marte home when his grounder to first took an odd hop, and Victor Martinez couldn't glove it.
Verlander left his start after one inning with right shoulder soreness. The former Cy Young winner gave up five runs on four hits and walked two. He threw 40 pitches and bunted in the second before he was removed.
Verlander (10-11) is scheduled to undergo an MRI in Detroit on Tuesday.
