J.D. Martinez went 1-for-4 and drove home the Astros only run in Friday’s loss to the Braves.
The 24-year-old outfielder is quietly having a fairly productive sophomore season. While the .242 average can be difficult to handle, he has provided solid run production with 11 homers and 54 RBI on the season. If he can learn to control the plate better and cut down on his strikeouts, he should develop into a very nice hitter.
