BOSTON — J.D. Martinez needed just one pitch to make a pretty big stamp on the Boston Red Sox’s rivalry with the New York Yankees.
Down 8-2 in the bottom of the fifth inning Wednesday evening, the Sox slugger crushed his sixth career grand slam, blasting a Masahiro Tanaka first-pitch splitter into the center field bleachers.

What a moment.
It was Martinez’s second home run in a Red Sox...
