Atlanta’s striker became the first player in MLS history to score ten goals in ten consecutive games, breaking the previous record set at nine goals in nine games by the Timber’s Diego Valeri and Martinez himself. Last season, the 26-year-old broke the record for most goals scored in a single MLS season, tallying 31 in 34 games played.

During his three seasons with the Five Stripes, the Venezuela international has scored 70 goals in 75 games played. And recent history shows that both numbers will only continue to climb.
