Astros second baseman Jose Altuve has won his fifth consecutive Silver Slugger Award since 2014.

Martinez is first player to receive two Silver Slugger Awards in one season.

The Cubs' second baseman and the White Sox first baseman were each named recipients of the Silver Slugger Award - given out by Louisville Slugger to the best hitter at a position in the American and National leagues. These are Martinez's second and third career Silver Slugger awards.

During the auction was able to implement a single instance of the thesis that the scientist has created fifty-three years ago. All of those were sold, and the total, about US$1.8 million, was seven times more than had been predicted.

His 1.088 OPS is the highest in the American League in 20076.

Betts, Martinez and the Red Sox claimed baseball's ultimate prize by winning the 2018 World Series, but adding a little extra hardware never hurts.

Players have received Silver Slugger Award votes at multiple positions in past years, but Martinez is the first player to win the award twice in the same season.

Belfast flight was literally programmed to plunge into ground
An inquest heard from terrified flight crew who said that they "became visual with the ground" as the plane dropped in the air. The report said that autopilot was engaged when the Bombardier Dash-8 Q400 turboprop plane reached an altitude of 1,350 ft.

Martinez made 57 appearances in the outfield for Boston this season and he served as the designated hitter in 93 games. He hit.330/.402/.629 with 43 home runs, 130 RBI, 111 runs scored, and even stole six bases.

Martinez wasn't the only member of the Red Sox to win a Silver Slugger on Thursday night. The 34-year-old outfielder was a first-time All-Star for the Atlanta Braves in 2018, and now he's a first-time Silver Slugger victor, as well. The MVP favorite led baseball with a.346 average and.640 slugging percentage, the first Red Sox player to accomplish that feat since Ted Williams in 1957.

However, the "Stop" hitmakers still won't rule out hope that Victoria will join them for at least one show on the tour. Ross commented drily: "Having said that, I think you still should have offered her the opportunity".
