Yankees designated hitter Alex Rodriguez went 1-for-2 with a mammoth two-run home run against the New Hampshire Fisher Cats at ARM & HAMMER Park on Wednesday night in the second game of his rehab stint with Double-A Trenton. Rodriguez is expected to be activated from the disabled list for the Yankees' 4:05 p.m. ET series finale against the Blue Jays on Thursday.

Martin's homerless drought finally came to an end at 124 at-bats on Wednesday night when he went deep twice in Toronto's 8-4 victory over the Yankees.
