Martinez homers 4 times as D-Backs blast Dodgers, 13-0

Martinez tied a major league record by slugging four of Arizona's six home runs, and the Diamondbacks routed the NL West-leading Los Angeles Dodgers 13-0 on Monday night for their 11th straight victory.

Martinez became the 18th player in big league history to accomplish the feat and first for Arizona. He's the 16th overall to do it since 1900 - Scooter Gennett of the Cincinnati Reds hit four consecutive home runs on June 6 against St. Louis.

Martinez did exactly what he was brought to the Diamondbacks to do on Monday as he homered off Rich Hill in the fourth inning, Pedro Baez in the seventh inning, Josh Fields in the eighth inning, and Wilmer Font in the ninth inning.

"They're playing really well", Dodgers Manager Dave Roberts told reporters Monday.

"It just goes back to the maturity of the team and understanding how to show up and win a game every night", Turner said.

Martinez is one of the piping hot hitters on a Diamondbacks team that has won 11 games in a row and hasn't trailed since the second inning during its August 25th matchup against the Giants-now 88 consecutive innings without a deficit.

In addition to these features, there will also be the usual array of electronic driver aids including a self-parking feature. To improve efficiency, the body has been redesigned with a flat floor, sharper nose and more aggressively tapered rear.

"Whatever happens (with the MRI results), I'm pretty confident I can play", Goldschmidt said. The left-hander allowed three hits and no walks in 7 2/3 innings.

Hill did too, giving up two hits and striking out nine in six innings.

The 13-run scoreless loss was the worst of the season for Los Angeles. Ray has started four games against the Dodgers this year and has a 3.00 ERA. The left-hander allowed only one run in six innings, pitching well enough to leave the game tied at 1.

Without a hit into the fifth inning, the Dodgers ended Zack Greinke's potential no-hitter and shutout when Grandal crushed his 19th home run of the season. Jonathan Schoop! The Orioles second baseman is slashing.306/.352/.539 with 30 homers and 101 RBI. Charlie Blackmon hit his 33rd homer of the season and DJ LeMahieu extended his hitting streak to 12 games as the Rockies increased their lead to 11/2 games over Milwaukee for the second National League wild-card spot. I felt that gave us the best chance to score a run. He is expected to be back in the lineup for the series against Colorado from September 8-10.

Seager was third in the 2016 National League MVP voting, and though he does not appear to be in the running this year, the Dodgers' struggles in his absence are a testament to the value he provides the team on a day-to-day basis. Dodgers RHP Brandon McCarthy (right finger blister) was moved to the 60-day disabled list and will next pitch for Class A Rancho Cucamonga in the postseason.

The Dodgers are in their first real funk of the season.
