Major league roundup: Martinez hits four homers in Arizona rout

Major league roundup: Martinez hits four homers in Arizona rout

"It's definitely a blessing", Martinez said of his four home runs. "You work real hard to find that flawless swing and it was just one of those days where everything lined up. I was seeing the ball well and when I was swinging I was hitting them".

He became the first player ever to do so at the iconic Dodger Stadium, and the 18th player to ever accomplish the feat (earlier this year, Reds 2B Scooter Gennett shocked everyone by hitting four).

"Awesome. I think they were more excited than I was", Martinez said of his teammates.

"Let's go up there and keep doing what you're doing", he said he told himself. "If it's meant to be, it's meant to be".

Martinez hit a two-run homer in the fourth off Dodgers starter Rich Hill. The White Sox aren't a good lineup, and they can be sliced up, paying less than $10,000 for that is pretty good.

The Dodgers are still baseball's best team at 92-45, but they remain mired in a season-worst slump, having dropped four in a row and nine in 10 games.

And he is the right-handed bat the Diamondbacks can use to complement MVP candidate Paul Goldschmidt against the left-handers the Dodgers figure to start in October: Clayton Kershaw, Hill and Alex Wood. They make me feel comfortable since I've gotten here. "I was able to get ahead of guys and take advantage of that".

The All-Star pitcher has been on fire this season and is 10-2 with a 1.94 ERA since May 20th.

He's also the first Diamondback to ever hit four in a game.

OAKLAND, Calif. - Los Angeles employed an American League-record 12 pitchers on Labor Day, and Kole Calhoun hit a two-run triple in the 11th inning to beat Oakland.

In four head-to-head meetings with the Dodgers over the past week, the Diamondbacks have won all four games by a combined score of 34-11, including a 13-0 rout on Monday that featured not only Martinez's four-homer game but also a 14-strikeout performance by starting pitcher Robbie Ray.

BALTIMORE - Starlin Castro homered and drove in three runs, Didi Gregorius also went deep and NY fueled its playoff push with a victory over Baltimore.

Martinez joins greats like Lou Gehrig, Gil Hodges, Willie Mays, and Mike Schmidt, who all are tied for the record for most home runs in a Major League game, according to the Baseball Almanac.

When Hill exited the game after surrendering two runs, it didn't feel like a game where an Arizona player would finish with four home runs. "You don't just win 10 games by accident". "We're doing the same thing we've been doing all year, just the results are different", said Roberts.

Goldschmidt's talent is especially missed during a series against the Dodgers. Arizona has won three straight meetings with the Dodgers, but the home team has won seven of the last nine in this series.
