The Postseason Home Run Report

by Bill Chuck on October 16, 2013

Mike Napoli hit a game-winning home run for the Red Sox last night in the Boston 1-0 win over Detroit and in LA, Matt Holliday hit a two-run homer and Shane Robinson hit a pinch-solo homer in the Cardinals 4-2 win over the Dodgers.

Home runs are ordinarily no big deal, but they have been both infrequent and significant in their appearances this postseason. The homers last night were the first of the NLCS. The Tigers have hit two homers, both in the 6-5 Game 2 loss to the Red Sox when David Ortiz hit a game-tying grand slam, the only other homer for Boston in the ALCS.

So far this postseason, when Boston homers in a game, they win

There have been 43 homers hit in 27 games this postseason. Teams are 17-11 in games in which they have homered.
