Martinez homers twice, Quintana ends 10-start winless streak as Mets beat Padres

NEW YORK — J.D. Martinez homered twice, Jose Quintana ended a 10-start winless streak and the New York Mets beat the San Diego Padres 5-1 Saturday for their eighth win in 10 games.

Martinez walked in his first two plate appearances against Adam Mazur (0-2), then homered off Jhony Brito to cap a three-run fourth and hit a solo drive in the seventh against Enyel De Los Santos.

"Didn't want him to see Martinez for the third time," Padres manager Mike Shildt said. "But I don't think we could have brought in — I don't know — Walter Johnson to face Martinez right now and I think it would matter.
