A newcomer to MLS, Martinez has already bagged five goals for Atlanta United, as he followed up his Week 2 hat trick in Minnesota with a coolly-taken brace in Saturday's 4-0 home trouncing of 10-man Chicago, where Greg Garza was also a standout for the expansion side.
Valeri, too, netted twice in Portland's 4-2 defeat of Houston, another strong display that also featured a goal by his teammate David Guzman. Meanwhile Larin and FC Dallas striker Maxi Urruti were also at the double, bagging both of their team's goals in 2-1 wins for Orlando and FCD, respectively.
