Mahtook's homer leads Tigers to win in Martinez's finale

DETROIT (AP) Victor Martinez will be remembered as one of the best line-drive hitters of the last 15 years, but his career ended in a different way.

Batting in the first inning of his final major league game, Martinez beat out an infield chopper and was immediately removed for a pinch runner.

"I think that's the perfect way to get my last hit," the longtime Tigers designated hitter said. "I had to work for it, and I had to grind it out. That's what my career has been about."
