Detroit Tigers' J.D. Martinez is congratulated by teammates after hitting a solo home run during the ninth inning of the team's baseball game against the Los Angeles Angels Saturday

Martinez will be activated off the Disabled List and return to the Tigers lineup Friday night against the Los Angeles Angels. He said he gets a little fired up to pitch against his hometown team.

Angels: Right-hander Alex Meyer is scheduled to make his fourth start of the season.

Detroit manager Brad Ausmus said Martinez will join the big club sometime this weekend in Anaheim. It's not easy, and I've got to remember that, which I will.

"He's not quite where he wants to be, and at times when he's not making his pitches, he's paying the price for it", Angels manager Mike Scioscia said. They claimed a 4-1 victory over the Tigers, splitting the four-game series and handing the Tigers a losing road trip.

Upton's home run in the sixth, a solo shot to left field, gave the Tigers a 3-2 lead. "It was a different day, for sure". I usually look at the first four hitters I'm going to face.

Bud Norris pitched the ninth for his seventh save in nine chances. The Angels have allowed 11 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in seven of their last 12 games. He later beat Norris on a hanging slider he pounded to right. Trout also was hit by a pitch and drew a walk from Verlander.

"It's something I already have in my mind", he said. He did not make an out all night, but they soon went right back off track. "So it's tough facing him, obviously". The Los Angeles Angels have lost six straight games when allowing more than three runs. The two-time AL MVP also stole two bases, joining Alex Rodriguez as the only players to get 175 homers and 150 steals before their age-26 season.

All three of the runs Nolasco bore scored on home runs.

Andrelton Simmons chipped in with an RBI single today, too, and the Angels as a whole had a good defense to back up Meyer's good start.

Angels third baseman Yunel Escobar left after the fifth when he felt a hamstring tighten up. Wilson struck out all three batters he faced, leaving Mike Trout standing in the on-deck circle. Los Angeles' preseason fifth starter isn't getting great results, but is eating up innings for an injury-plagued staff.
