The Boston Red Sox’s offense was awfully quiet in Tuesday’s series opener against the Toronto Blue Jays.

Well, everyone besides J.D. Martinez.

After collecting a double and a single over the course of his first three at-bats at Rogers Centre, the Red Sox slugger delivered in the clutch when he smashed a go-ahead, three-run home run in the eighth inning to give Boston a 5-3 lead.

You can check out Martinez’s round-tripper below:

For the moment, Martinez’s 34th home run of the season gives him the Major League Baseball lead in long balls ahead of the Cleveland Indians’ Jose Ramirez.
