The win gave Boston another series win and enabled them to end the road trip with a 6-3 record.
In addition to his fifth home run of the year, Martinez (pictured) also made a terrific running catch in the bottom of the first inning on a fly ball to deep right center that prevented two runs from scoring.
Chris Sale started for the Red Sox but ran into early trouble, allowing single runs in the first through third innings. He went six innings in the win allowing three runs on four hits (two of them home runs) and two walks while striking out four. Craig Kimbrel picked up his seventh save of the year.

Yeah, I used to be that guy on WNEW-FM. No, I never worked at WPLJ (honest).
I support my family by doing two things in life I truly love - baseball and radio (WDHA).
