JD Martinez becomes 18th player with 4 HRs in a game

JD Martinez becomes 18th player with 4 HRs in a game

He'd start Game 1 and, yeah, that World Series might look pretty distant for the Dodgers. Even better, he hit each of his four home runs-none of which were ever in doubt-to different parts of the ballpark. The Padres didn't get a runner into scoring position the whole game and never had two runners on in any inning.

When the Diamondbacks shipped three prospects to Detroit for J.D. Martinez, it was that most classic of deadline deals: the rental slugger.

Martinez was four-for-five with six RBIs in front of a crowd of 47,200 at Dodger Stadium.

Goldschmidt broke his left hand in 2014, however, and was forced to sit out 53 games, which slowed him down after a career year in 2013.

It's only the 18th time in Major League Baseball history that a player has ever hit four homers in a single game, so Martinez is in rare company when it comes to occurrences all-time. I could say give Corey Seager (time off), but who is to say he's going to come back sharp?

The Yankees played without catcher Gary Sanchez, who began serving a suspension that was reduced from four to three games, stemming from an August 24 brawl against Detroit. "As long as we play the right way, and we compete, I'll bet on us".

He had flirted with the magic number four once before in 2015, when he hit three home runs in a game.

METS 11, PHILLIES 7 Jose Reyes and Asdrubal Cabrera each homered and NY built a big lead to beat visiting Philadelphia to end a four-game losing streak.

What has been dawning on the rest of baseball for the past several weeks is now glaringly apparent: the Diamondbacks, winners of 11 straight and 13 of their last 14, are at this moment the scariest team in the NL.

"They have my best interest and the best interest of the team", he said. Boston lost for the fourth time in five games.

Arizona is 14-3 in their last 17 games overall and 5-1 in Walker's last 6 division starts while the over is 6-3 in their last 9 games overall. Carlos Carrasco (13-6, 3.67 ERA) starts for Cleveland on the road against the Chicago White Sox.

How much Martinez magic will they get then?

Martinez hit home runs off of Rich Hill (fourth inning), Pedro Baez (seventh inning), Josh Fields (eighth inning) and Wilmer Font (ninth inning). Between the end of July and into August he strung together four good starts, putting together 25.1 innings with 38 strikeouts and a 1.78 ERA.

The Dodgers return home Monday to host second-place Arizona, which swept them in Phoenix last week.

"I've gotten to three before", Martinez said. "He did a great job tonight".

Hill did too, giving up two hits and striking out nine in six innings. Colorado arrives later in the week for a four-game series.
