Have yourself a day, J.D. Martinez.
It was not enough to kick back on his last at-bat of the game after a ton of production all game. No, the Boston Red Sox designated hitter decided to run up the score instead.
And he got a little help from the Pesky Pole.
Martinez approached the box in the bottom of the eighth inning with Franchy Cordero and Alex Verdugo on base. And with a full count against Rays pitcher Chris Mazza, he ripped a 326-foot homer to right field that bounced off the famed foul pole.
