When J.D. Martinez gets hot, look out. Over his last three games, the Red Sox slugger is 6-for-13 with four home runs, seven RBIs and five runs scored.

First came a pair of dingers in an 11-2 win over the Mariners on Sunday. Then another homer in an eventual 5-4 extra-innings loss to the Rockies on Tuesday. And then a two-run homer and an RBI single in Wednesday's 6-5 extra-innings win over the Rockies on Wednesday.

Martinez's recent outburst brings his season totals to nine home runs and 28 RBIs to go along with a .321 average and .940 OPS.
