  • Red Sox's J.D. Martinez: Provides pair of RBI

    Martinez went 3-for-4 with a pair of RBI in Friday's win over the Yankees.

    Martinez brought the Red Sox to within one run with his RBI single in the fourth, and his one-out RBI single in the bottom of the ninth sent the game to extras, where Boston would eventually win. The game represented Martinez's first multi-hit performance thus far in August -- he'd gone just 5-for-33 (.152) at the plate to begin the month.

  • Red Sox's J.D. Martinez: Knocks in two from six-hole

    Martinez batted sixth and went 1-for-5 with a two-run double in Friday's 7-4 win over the Royals.

    Martinez, who went 3-for-34 (.088) in his first nine games following the All-Star break, was dropped to sixth in the order. It was the first time he's batted as low as sixth since May 16, 2017, when he was with the Tigers. It's been a down year for the slumping slugger, who has just nine home runs and 42 RBI through 91 games -- well off the pace of his 162-game average of 33 and 105.

    Martinez is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Astros.

    Though the Red Sox made Martinez available ahead of Tuesday's trade deadline, the team didn't find an offer it liked and will keep the 34-year-old in the fold for the remainder of the campaign. Though Martinez should continue to play on a near-everyday basis, he'll get a breather Wednesday while the Red Sox conclude their series in Houston with a day game after a night game. Rafael Devers will step in as Boston's designated hitter while Martinez sits after going 0-for-4 with three strikeouts in Tuesday's 2-1 win.
