The Arizona Diamondbacks have been red hot as of late, winning 11 games in a row, and they haven’t trailed in a game since August 25.

But perhaps even more impressive is the performance J.D. Martinez had on Monday night in Los Angeles.

Martinez hit four home runs in the Dbacks 13-0 win, the first time any Dbacks player has ever done so.

Martinez’s four home run game is just the 18th time it has been done in MLB history and the first time it’s ever been done by an opponent at Dodgers Stadium.

He has hit 18 home runs since he came to Arizona from the Detroit Tigers, and 34 on the season. 

If the Dbacks win Tuesday against the Dodgers, they will tie their longest win streak in franchise history of 12 games, set back in 2003.
