J.D. Martinez deserved a better fate. He played splendidly. Almost single handedly, he willed the Tigers across the finish line. He made an excellent catch in right; he had a big RBI double and a home run. Instead of ending the game by bouncing into a 5-4-3 double play it would have been more appropriate if he had extended or won the game in the bottom of the ninth.
It was not to be. The series is even and they have to beat reigning Cy Young winner Corey Kluber to win the series.
We shall see.
