A two-run home run by J.D. Martinez helped give the Red Sox a first inning lead in Sunday's game against the Toronto Blue Jays.

After a base hit by Andrew Benintendi, Martinez took Blue Jays' starter Joe Biagini's 94 mph fastball over the right field wall for his 10th home run of the season.
Martinez's blast was yet another example of his spectacular opposite field power that has been on display this season.

With the home run, Martinez also increased his team high RBI total to 32, and extended his current hitting streak to 14 games.

Through the first 40 games of the Red Sox season, Martinez has been worth every penny of the 5-year, $110 million contract he signed this offseason.
