Watch: JD Martinez smacks 3-run home run in Game 1

JD Martinez

JD Martinez continues to make Boston fans fall in love with him.

Martinez smacked a 3-run home run in the bottom of the first inning of Game 1 of the ALDS on Friday night against the New York Yankees. Mookie Betts struck out as the leadoff batter, but Andrew Benintendi singled and Steve Pearce walked to set the table for Martinez.

The Red Sox DH took a pitch low and in from JA Happ and lined it out to left, barely clearing the Green Monster:

Martinez continued his excellent year into the postseason. He batted .330 with 37 doubles and 43 home runs with 130 RBIs in the regular season, and now he opens the postseason with a huge 3-run homer to make it 3-0 against the rival Yankees.
