Game 4 of the 2020 World Series started as a slugfest, with the Los Angeles Dodgers ‘ Justin Turner and Corey Seager belting home runs in the first and third innings respectively and the Tampa Bay Rays’ Randy Arozarena responding in the bottom of the fourth with a solo shot off of Dodgers’ starter Julio Urías. Here’s that home run from Arozarena, which moved him into first place all time for home runs in a single postseason (out of a five-way tie at eight with Seager, Nelson Cruz, Carlos Beltrán and Barry Bonds):

And Arozarena is in very good company on the rate stats as well:
Randy Arozarena and Babe Ruth are the only players in MLB history to homer more often than every 12.0 at-bats in both the regular season and playoffs.

Arozarena is having an amazing postseason for the Rays, and he’s hitting a lot of balls out of the park. We’ll see if that continues as this series progresses.
