The Four-Homer Postseason Game Report

by Bill Chuck on October 17, 2013

The Dodgers did not homer in any of the first five games of their LCS against the Cardinals but they made up for it yesterday afternoon in the warm LA air going deep four times.

Adrian Gonzalez homered twice, and Carl Crawford and A.J. Ellis also homered.

It was the 56th game in postseason history with a team slamming at least four homers. The only other time the Dodgers had done it in the NLCS was on October 4, 1978 in Game 1 against Philadelphia. They also homered four times in Game 4 of the 1977 World Series against the Yankees.
