Said Victor Martinez: "This is when we need them the most. They've been great. They've been making noise, and we feed off that. I've said it before, and I'll say it again, we feed off that. It's just really fun to play in front of fans like this."

Tigers' Victor Martinez battling Altuve for AL batting crown

The gap between Martinez and Altuve in infield hits is almost the reverse of the gap between them in home runs. Entering Tuesday, Martinez had 30 homers and Altuve seven. It is hard to dispute that Martinez has been the best all-around hitter in the AL this season.

Victor Martinez hit his 30th home run and Miguel Cabrera clubbed his 20th for the Tigers.

Brad Ausmus continues 'balancing act' involving Miguel Cabrera, Victor Martinez

Brad Ausmus continues 'balancing act' involving Miguel Cabrera, Victor Martinez

Ausmus said he doesnt plan to give the two any time off. He hopes to simply balance the playing time to keep Cabrera off his feet as much as possible without burning out Martinez by playing him too much in the field. CLEVELAND -- Brad Ausmus wants to keep Miguel Cabrera off his feet -- specifically, his right ankle -- as much as possible. That's why Cabrera is in the lineup as the designated hitter for the fourth consecutive game. But Ausmus also wants to be careful that he doesn't create another problem in the meantime. He doesn't want to overuse Victor...
Victor Martinez earns American League Player of the Month honors

Victor Martinez earns American League Player of the Month honors

All the more proof of how badly the Tigers need to re-sign Victor Martinez. The designated hitter — who has begun filling in for the hobbled Miguel Cabrera more and more at first base recently — has also been stealing his teammate’s schtick, earning American League Player of the month honors for August. Detroit’s last AL Player of the Month was Cabrera last August. In the midst of perhaps the best season of his career, Martinez led MLB hitters in RBI (30), intentional walks (7) and times reached base (61) in the month, and was in a three-way tie with 41 hits. He had a pair of...

Column: Victor Martinez flourishing as a Detroit Tigers' leader

At age 35, this team elder is having what could be the best season of his impressive career. DETROIT - Because Victor Martinez of the Detroit Tigers bats from both sides of the plate, he sometimes rubs pine tar from his bat onto both shoulders of his uniform in the same game. The dark marks – especially on the white home “D” shirts – stand out like epaulets or stripes of rank. This is appropriate for Martinez, who doubled to lead off the ninth inning against the New York Yankees Thursday afternoon at Comerica Park. His hit -- on Shawn Kelley's sixth pitch...
