Topps Now: October 18, 2021

The last win of the 2021 season for the Red Sox came in Game 3 of the ALCS when Boston beat the Astros 9-2.  At the time, they took a 2-1 lead in the Series.  But it was all downhill from there.

1.  Kyle Schwarber.  Schwarber hit a grand slam in the third inning off of Jose Urquidy.  That was pretty much all the Red Sox needed.

2.  Kyle Schwarber/Rafael Devers/J.D. Martinez.  Boston became the first team in postseason history to have three grand slams in one series.  Each of the players depicted connected for a bases-loaded bomb.

3.  Christian Arroyo/J.D. Martinez.  Arroyo and Martinez each homered in the game.  Arroyo drove in three runs in the game.  Martinez had two hits, including a homer and a double and drove in two runs.

4.  Enrique Hernandez.  Hernadez had two more hits in the game, giving him 17 in a six-game span.

5.  Hunter Renfroe.  Renfroe made a sliding catch to put the game away for the Red Sox
