MUST SEE: You will not believe how Victor Martinez’s final MLB at-bat ended

On Friday, Detroit Tigers designated hitter Victor Martinez announced that he would be playing his final Major League Baseball game on Saturday at Comerica Park. Rather than playing out the rest of the season, Martinez said he wanted his final game to take place in front of Tigers fans.

Well, on Saturday, Martinez had his final MLB at-bat and it ended in the most unpredictable way possible.

Watch as Martinez, who has never been known for his blazing speed and certainly is not known for it now, hits a chopper to second base and beats it out for his final Major League base hit. Martinez received a standing ovation and was removed from the game for a pinch runner.

Seriously, this is like something from a movie!

Congrats to Victor Martinez for one hell of a career.

When will the Detroit Lions win their first game?

When first evaluating the Detroit Lions 2018 schedule prior to the start of the season, there is no way I would have ever predicted that I would be writing a piece like this. After all, the Lions opened the season at home against the New York Jets on Monday Night Football. It seemed like the perfect scenario for a team that had just hired a new head coach. And that scenario seemed to improve even more when the Jets revealed they would be starting rookie quarterback Sam Darnold in their season opener.

Unfortunately, Lions’ Nation was completely blindsided when the Jets ran away with a 48-17 win. The loss not only shocked the fans but cause many of them to completely freak out on the team. Some blamed Bob Quinn, some blamed Matt Patricia, and some blamed our best player, Matthew Stafford. The Lions were thought of as a lock to start the season 1-0 and they blew it.

In Week 2, it was more of the same as the San Francisco 49ers jumped out to a huge lead on the Lions before holding on for a 30-27 win. The loss not only dropped the Lions to 0-2 but with a tough schedule staring them in the face, many fans are wondering, when will they get their first win of the season?
