In Game 5 of the American League Championship Series on Thursday, Arozarena launched his sixth home run of the playoffs, tying him with Evan Longoria (2008) for the most by a rookie in postseason history. The Rays’ left fielder went with a knee-high fastball from Astros reliever Enoli Paredes and sent it a projected 406 feet to the opposite field.
Arozarena’s homer, his third in five games of the ALCS, brought the Rays within one in a tense Game 5 at Petco Park. He’s now just two hits shy of tying Derek Jeter’s postseason record of 22 by a rookie, set in 1996
