Tigers' Victor Martinez busts out with two home runs, five RBI in win
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Tigers designated hitter Victor Martinez broke out of his batting slump in big fashion on Thursday. Martinez went 2 for 5 with two home runs in the 8-6 win over the Royals.

Martinez feasted on Yordano Ventura's pitching, as he took the right-hander deep for a three-run shot in the third inning. He then hit a two-run bomb off Ventura in the fifth, totaling five RBI on the afternoon.

This was Martinez's first multi-home run game of the season, and his first five-RBI game in almost a full year. 

"You know what, I think I was just a little lucky today," Martinez said, per MLB.com. "[Ventura] threw a couple pitches up in the zone and I was just able to put a good swing on it."

Even with the big offensive day, Martinez is still batting a lowly .171 over his past 10 games. Thursday's home runs account for his only extra-base hits since he hit a double back on July 23.

Tigers DH Victor Martinez blasts off, then gets tossed
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Usually mild-mannered Tigers designated hitter Victor Martinez exploded after a strike call made by umpire Marty Foster on Saturday and was tossed from the game.

A wrap-around curve by Minnesota starter Phil Hughes appeared to be outside, but the pitch resulted in a strikeout. Martinez screamed at Foster as Brad Ausmus rushed from the dugout to keep him from getting into further trouble.

Martinez lost a chance to do more damage against Twins pitching. He had blasted his second home run in two days to lead off the fourth and is batting .440 (11-for-25) over his last five games with three home runs.
