While they mainly relied on their speed during the regular season, it has been a sudden burst of power that has transformed this Arizona offense into a pitcher’s nightmare.

It was a remarkable four home runs that got the D-backs into an early lead.

The home run parade began with Geraldo Perdomo out of the nine spot.

Two batters later, Ketel Marte pimped a ball into the right field bleachers.

Then, Christian Walker added one more with a rocket that sent Chase Field into a frenzy.

And finally, after having a home run called back earlier in the at-bat, 23-year-old Gabriel Moreno launched a ball 420-feet for one of the biggest “ball don’t lie” moments in postseason history.

This home run also put the Diamondbacks into the history books as they became the first team to hit four bombs in one inning during a postseason game.
