Tigers' Victor Martinez: Goes deep twice in win against Yankees

Martinez went 2-for-5 with two, two-run home runs in Thursday's 8-7 win over the Yankees.

The 39-year-old turned back the clock in this one and looked like the slugger he once was. Martinez took New York starter J.A. Happ deep in the fifth, then blasted a game-tying, two-run shot against Dellin Betances in the ninth inning. The veteran has had a solid month, as he's now batting .286 in August with the two home runs and 12 RBI.
