Schwarbomb! Phillies DH Kyle Schwarber sets record for career postseason homers for a lefty

With an astonishing display of power, Kyle Schwarber has surpassed even baseball legends like The Great Bambino and Mr. October.

In a historic moment during Friday’s NLCS Game 4 against the Arizona Diamondbacks, the Philadelphia Phillies’ slugger launched his 19th career postseason home run, according to Delaware Online.

This incredible 409-foot solo blast in the fourth inning at Chase Field in Arizona not only put the Phillies on the scoreboard but also allowed Schwarber to surpass the record previously held by the legendary Reggie Jackson from the New York Yankees and Oakland A’s. The home run narrowed Arizona’s lead to 2-1.
