Martinez went 1-for-5 with a double and two RBI in Tuesday's 9-5 extra-innings win over the Rays. Martinez's two-run double in the third inning extended his hitting streak to 11 games. The slugger has an .818 OPS during the streak with six extra-base hits, seven RBI and eight runs scored. His .913 OPS in 2021 has allayed any concerns that may have surfaced following a sub-par 2020 when he posted a .680 OPS.
Martinez went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Saturday's 7-1 win over the Royals. His fifth-inning blast off Brad Keller capped a four-run rally by the Red Sox that put them in the lead for good. Martinez extended his hitting streak to nine games with the long ball, and on the season he's batting .307 with 14 homers and 44 RBI through 65 contests.
Martinez went 1-for-4 with a home run, two RBI and two runs scored in Thursday's 12-8 win over Houston. Martinez went yard in the third inning for his first homer since May 20 -- he has battled foot and wrist injuries since then. In the sixth, he reached on a run-scoring error, then scored when Christian Vazquez was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded. Martinez is slashing a strong .312/.377/.561 with 13 homers, 41 RBI and 43 runs scored across 246 plate appearances. He should continue to hit in the heart of Boston's order while seeing time as the designated hitter and corner outfield depth.
Martinez (wrist) went 1-for-4 with a single in Tuesday's 7-1 loss to the Astros. Martinez was back in the lineup after missing three games due to a wrist injury. He returned to serve as the designated hitter but was dropped to the cleanup spot for the first time in 2021.
Martinez (wrist) will bat cleanup and serve as the designated hitter Tuesday against the Astros, Christopher Smith of The Springfield Republican reports. A left wrist issue kept Martinez out of the lineup for three straight games, but the Red Sox didn't expect the injury to warrant a trip to the injured list. That's indeed the case, as he's back in action Tuesday and will look to build on a bounce-back season that has seen him hit .321/.389/.569 through 54 games.
