J.D. Martinez provided the offensive boost the Red Sox needed. He bounced back from a down season last year and was named an All-Star in July.
Right before the regular season ended, he sprained his left ankle, missing the wild-card game against the Yankees and the opener of this series. He returned for Game 2 and had an immediate impact with four hits and five RBIs.
Tampa won the AL East title in the regular season, but with Nathan Eovaldi taking the mound after a strong performance in the wild-card game in which he struck out eight and only give up one run in 5.1 innings, the Red Sox could move ahead in the ALDS.
