The Arizona Diamondbacks got a 4-2 win against the Los Angeles Dodgers in Game 3 of NLDS to sweep the series and book their place in the NLCS. And they did it in a historic fashion.
All of Diamondback’s runs came from home runs and they hit all four of them in the third inning. This made them the first team in MLB postseason history to hit four or more homers in a single inning. To put things in perspective, the most home runs scored in a single postseason game is six.
Geraldo Perdomo opened the home run fest with a 383-feet homer with Ketel Marte, Christian Walker, and Gabriel Moreno all following suit.
“That’s the coolest thing I’ve ever seen in my life,” Walker said after the game.
The Arizona Diamondbacks managed to sneak into the 2023 MLB postseason after finishing the regular season with 84-78 record. But Arizona has looked like a real deal so far. They have managed to sweep the NL Central champions Milwaukee Brewers in the wild-card game and have now knocked out the 100-win Dodgers.
The Diamondbacks are now heading to the NL Championship Series for the first time since 2007. They will either face the Atlanta Braves or the Philadelphia Phillies for a chance to make their second World Series appearance in franchise history.
