At this point, it'd be more surprising if J.D. Martinez didn't hit a home run.

The Arizona Diamondbacks slugger brought his team to within a run when he blasted a ninth-inning homer in Wednesday's game against the San Francisco Giants. It was the 16th time he's gone deep this month, tying the National League record for homers in September with Ralph Kiner who did it in 1949, according to Baseball-Almanac.

If Martinez can manage one more long ball in the Diamondbacks' final three games, he'll move into a tie for the MLB record in September alongside Albert Belle (1995) and Babe Ruth (1927).

Since being acquired from the Detroit Tigers at the trade deadline, Martinez has hit 29 home runs in only 59 games.
