Red Sox DH J.D. Martinez hit his 200th career home run, belting a two-run homer off of David Hess in the top of the first inning of Tuesday night’s game against the Orioles. The dinger broke a scoreless tie.

Martinez is the 347th member of the 200 homer club. Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo joined the club yesterday. A handful of other players are on the precipice of 200 homers, including Freddie Freeman (196), Nolan Arenado (195), Todd Frazier (195), Shin-Soo Choo (193), and Bryce Harper (190).

After Tuesday’s round-tripper, Martinez is batting .326/.396/.500 on the season with five homers, 20 RBI, and 19 runs scored in 149 plate appearances.
