San Fransisco Giants

HOUSTON (AP) - Joe Martinez came off the disabled list to win his first major league start, Eli Whiteside hit a grand slam for his first career home run and the San Francisco Giants rallied for a 10-6 win over the Houston Astros on Wednesday.

Martinez (2-0) pitched in the majors for the first time since he was struck in the head by a line drive hit by Milwaukee's Mike Cameron on April 9, his second outing of the season.

The 26-year-old rookie right-hander made seven starts in the minors before he was reinstated from the 60-day disabled list to start the game against Houston. He gave up three runs and seven hits in five innings.

Whiteside's slam gave the Giants a 7-3 lead in the sixth against Brian Moehler (7-7).
