Giants' Strickland allows postseason-record 6th homer
Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

Hunter Strickland's miserable postseason continued Tuesday, putting him into the record books for all the wrong reasons. 

The hard-throwing right-hander became the first reliever in major league history to allow six homers in a single postseason when he surrendered a solo blast in the seventh inning of Game 6. 

Mike Moustakas delivered the blow and joined the record books himself by connecting on his fifth homer of the playoffs, setting a Royals record for most home runs in a single postseason. 

Strickland faced 146 batters in the minor leagues this season and allowed three homers, a far cry from how often he has been serving them up during the San Francisco Giants' playoff run. The 26-year-old rookie has faced 34 batters this postseason and surrendered home runs in five of his eight appearances.
