Brian Matusz and the Baltimore Orioles spoiled Jarrod Washburn's debut with the Detroit Tigers with an 8-2 win Tuesday night.

Cesar Izturis and Nick Markakis each homered, drove in three runs and had three hits for Baltimore. Izturis also made two outstanding defensive plays.

Matusz (1-0), the fourth pick overall in the 2008 draft, allowed a run and six hits in five innings in his major league debut. He walked three and struck out five.

He was 7-0 with a 1.55 ERA for Double-A Bowie before being recalled on Tuesday.

Washburn (8-7), who was acquired from Seattle on July 31 in a deal for pitchers Luke French and Mauricio Robles, gave up six runs and six hits in 5 1-3 innings.

Matusz worked out of a bases-loaded, two-out jam in the second, thanks to Izturis' diving stop at short on Adam Everett's grounder up the middle. Izturis then flipped to second baseman Brian Roberts for the force out.

He also got out of jam in the fifth by striking out Marcus Thames and Ryan Raburn with runners on second and third.

The Orioles blew open a tight game in the sixth with four runs to make it 7-1.

Markakis hit a two-run homer that was estimated at 442 feet and Izturis added a two-out, bases-loaded two-run single.

Melvin Mora added a RBI single in the seventh.

Baltimore scored in each of the first two innings to take a 2-0 lead.

Markakis' RBI single opened the scoring in the first, one out after Roberts greeted Washburn with a leadoff double off the left-centerfield fence.

Matt Wieters' single made it 2-0 in the second.

Detroit scored on Everett's double in the fourth and Magglio Ordonez's single in the ninth.

Izturis restored the Orioles two-run lead with a two-out homer in the fifth. It was his second of the season and first since opening day.

Notes: Detroit recalled OF Wilkin Ramirez from Triple-A Toledo and optioned RHP Casey Fien to the same team. Ramirez started in left field and batted leadoff in the game. ... Baltimore optioned RHP Kam Mickolio to Triple-A Norfolk to make room for Matusz.
