The legend of Tampa Bay Rays rookie outfielder Randy Arozarena continues to grow on a nightly basis at this point in the World Series. With an RBI single in the third inning against the Los Angeles Dodgers on Sunday evening, Arozarena made history by setting the all time big league record for hits in a single postseason.

Thanks to his latest postseason hit in Game 5, Arozarena has now tallied 27 hits in all throughout the playoffs for the Rays. While now claiming such a record for himself, the former St. Louis Cardinals outfielder has surpassed former San Francisco Giants third baseman Pablo Sandoval, who posted 26 postseason hits back in 2014.

Major League Baseball tinkers with its postseason format this time around, which has afforded Arozarena a few extra games to continue to produce hits. It is also worth noting that the Rays slugger is looking to match what Sandoval and the Giants did in 2014 as San Francisco won the World Series thanks to those 26 hits from the “Panda.”

The Rays and Dodgers entered Game 5 with the 2020 World Series knotted at two games apiece. With the Dodgers nearly capturing a 3-1 series lead through the first four games of this back-and-forth affair, the Rays came from behind in memorable fashion in Game 4 en route to tying things up at two games each.
