Watch: JD Martinez twists ankle running bases

JD Martinez

JD Martinez twisted his ankle while running the bases on an RBI double he smacked during the bottom of the third inning of Game 1 of the World Series on Tuesday.

Martinez was up for the Boston Red Sox with Steve Pearce on first and two outs and drove a ball off the center field wall against Los Angeles Dodgers starter Clayton Kershaw. Pearce was able to score thanks to the deep drive, and Martinez was thinking triple as he approached second base. However, he slipped on the base and then rolled his right ankle. Martinez had to scramble back to second after falling.

Martinez was looked at by trainers but remained in the game.

Martinez had two hits and two RBIs at that point, so he was delivering in a big way for Boston. The status of his ankle will be something to watch over the rest of the series.
