VMart opens 2nd half, back in Tigers lineup for first time since July 4

Victor Martinez missed the final eight games of the first half for the Tigers, and 11 of the final 13 before the break, but he's back in the lineup for Friday's series opener against the Cleveland Indians. It's his first game action since he left the July 4 game with recurring soreness in his side.

NOTES: It's Motown Night, so the national anthem will be sung by the Four Tops, while one of the group's members, Duke Fakir, will throw out the ceremonial first pitch. Sgt. Ryan Roush (Republic, Ohio) of the U.S. Marine Corps will deliver the game ball.
