Rob Carr/Getty ImagesRussell Martin is congratulated after his second home run tonight.
Russell Martin has hit two home runs tonight and now has six in 16 games with the Yankees. In 97 games with the Dodgers last season, he hit five.

Martin has a .400 on-base percentage and .722 slugging percentage in 2011. There was always the chance he would bounce back, but this is ridiculous.

Here's how some other recent ex-Dodgers are doing this season (stats through Friday).
