The Diamondbacks young core has broken a new postseason record

With still a couple more games to go, the Arizona Diamondbacks youngsters have broken a major league record with the most postseason home runs combined between players 23 years old or younger.

During this October, the quartet of Corbin Carroll, Alek Thomas, Geraldo Perdomo, and Gabriel Moreno has collectively hammered 23 home runs.

Thomas and Moreno have contributed four each, while Perdomo and Carroll have chipped in with two each.

What makes this feat truly remarkable is that these young players have largely relied on base hits and speed to get on base in the past.

With the exception of Corbin Carroll, none of them hit more than 10 home runs during the regular season, yet they are now leading the Diamondbacks’ offense in the postseason.

As the D-backs trail the Texas Rangers 2-1 in the World Series, they will surely be hoping for more home runs from this young core.
