Maybe I Was Wrong About Russell Martin...

In the third inning with one out and runners on first and second, Martin surprised everyone by stealing third base. It was actually a smart move. The Tiger infield was in a shift to protect against the pulling-hitting Mark Teixera. Detroit's Justin Verlander had been struggling but keeping the Yanks scoreless. But Martin's daring steal may have thrown him off. He probably wants the next pitch back. Teixeira drove it into the seats in right field for a three-run dinger.
