MLB – J. D Martinez Homers For the Detroit Tigers

Posted on March 15, 2016 in Professional Sports News.

J.D. Martinez homered for a third time in Grapefruit League play Monday as the Tigers beat the Mets, 9-2, at Joker Marchant Stadium.

The home run, a two-run shot over the fence in right-center field with no outs in the fifth inning, gave the Tigers a three-run cushion and spurred six straight runs.

Mike Aviles homered to left field in the seventh inning. It was his first of the spring and Detroit’s league-leading 27th.

Tigers starter Daniel Norris struck out four and gave up a run.

The Tigers take on the Braves today in Lakeland.

First pitch is 1:05 p.m.
