  • Postseason puzzlers

    Something significant happened in the following two postseason games that has never happened before. Can you tell me what the answers are? 1. Game Two of the 2012 NLDS between St. Louis and Washington. 2. Game Three of the 2008 World Series between Philadelphia and Tampa Bay. The answers are completely different from each other.

    Here are some hints. The first one was accomplished by a St. Louis player. The second one was 'achieved' by member of Tampa Bay.

        No, that wasn't what I was looking for. Although, that was a good guess. Here are the correct answers. In Game Two of the 2012 NLDS, Carlos Beltran of St. Louis became the first player to have a multiple-homer postseason game for three different teams. He previously had multi-homer postseason games with Houston and the New York Mets. In Game Three of the 2008 World Series, Tampa Bay's J. P. Howell became the first (and still only) pitcher to lose a postseason game that he allowed no hits and no walks. He hit a batter leading off the ninth inning and that man scored on a hit allowed by another Tampa Bay pitcher.
