Detroit holds on for 7-6 win over Orioles

Updated: Saturday, April 5 2014, 04:38 PM EDT

DETROIT -- Torii Hunter homered and drove in five runs, and the Detroit Tigers withstood a five-run ninth inning by Baltimore to beat the Orioles 7-6 on Saturday.

Rick Porcello (1-0) allowed a run and three hits in 6 2/3 innings in his first start of the season, and the Tigers (4-0) remained baseball's only undefeated team. But the Orioles nearly pulled off a remarkable rally after trailing 7-1 entering the ninth.

Joe Nathan got the final two outs for his first save with the Tigers, retiring Chris Davis on a flyout with two on to end it.

Hunter hit a three-run double in the third, then added a two-run drive in the fifth for his second homer of the year.

Bud Norris (0-1) allowed five runs and nine hits in five innings, and the Orioles lost their fourth straight.
