So. Many. Home. Runs.
Seriously, there have been 24 home runs in the A’s-Houston Astros AL Division Series between both teams through seven innings of Game 4. According to MLB.com’s Sarah Langs, that’s the most in a postseason series of five games or fewer:
Astros outfielder Michael Brantley’s second home run of the game was the record-setter … and also gave the Astros a 6-4 lead over the A’s in the bottom of the fifth inning.
The Astros didn't stop there as Jose Altuve hit a two-run homer in the bottom of the seventh inning to push the Astros' lead to 11-4.
In total, the A's and Astros have combined for six long balls Thursday … so far.
In case you're wondering, the record for any series length is 26 combined homers in the 2008 American League Championship Series between the Boston Red Sox and Tampa Bay Rays.
