When you’re on the mound, don’t make a mistake – all @JDMartinez14 does is rake. #PapaSlam

You can't stop J.D. Martinez. You can only hope to contain him.

The Arizona Diamondbacks slugger continued his torrid two-month run in the desert Tuesday by lacing a long grand slam off San Francisco's Matt Moore in the second inning that put his team up 8-0.

With the D-Backs having clinched home-field for the wild-card game on Sunday, all that's left for them to do is chase individual marks - and Martinez is in good shape to pad his own statistics. The slam was his 27th homer in just 57 games with Arizona since being traded to the club in July. In addition, it was his 15th big fly in the month of September, moving him within one of tying the month's homer record set by Hall of Famer Ralph Kiner in September 1949, according to ESPN Stats & Info.
