On June 16 2016 — 2016 – Victor Martinez connects for three homers to lead the Tigers to a 10 – 4 win over the Royals. The Tigers hit six homers in all, with Nick Castellanos, James McCann and Miguel Cabrera adding the other long balls. However, it’s not all good news for Detroit as OF J.D. Martinez breaks his elbow running into the fence while chasing a ball in the right-field corner and will be out for a long stretch.
