Boston Herald - - RED SOX 2018 -

SOX: J.D. Martinez. ASTROS: Tyler White, Evan Gat­tis The run­down: In the Di­vi­sion Se­ries for the Sox, the matchup was in­trigu­ing be­cause of the his­tory of how each team ac­quired its pri­mary des­ig­nated hit­ter. In this one, there is no his­tory. Nor is there much of a ques­tion as to which team has the bet­ter DH. Martinez has proven to be an of­fen­sive cat­a­lyst while help­ing other hit­ters on the team im­prove. His .330 bat­ting av­er­age was sec­ond on the team be­hind Betts. Nei­ther White nor Gat­tis can match Martinez head-to-head.

EDGE: Red Sox
