Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Fri Oct 16, 2020 12:36 pm

Randy Arozarena has emerged as a star for the Tampa Bay Rays this postseason.

Arozarena went deep in Game 5 of the ALCS on Thursday night, giving him six home runs during the Rays\' run. He has tied the Major League mark for homers by a rookie. Evan Longoria hit six for Tampa Bay during the 2008 postseason.

The Rays didn\'t add Arozarena to the Major League roster until Aug. 30.

Barry Bonds, Carlos Beltran and Nelson Cruz hold the overall record for home runs in one playoffs with eight.
