The final home run forced Los Angeles to pull their starting pitcher, Lance Lynn.

In Game 3 of the NLDS against the Dodgers on Wednesday night, the Diamondbacks etched their name into MLB postseason history by achieving an unprecedented feat: hitting four home runs in a single inning, a record-breaking accomplishment. What makes this achievement even more remarkable is that all four home runs came off the same pitcher, the Los Angeles starter, Lance Lynn, who had allowed the most home runs during the regular season with a total of 44.

The explosive inning began when shortstop Geraldo Perdomo initiated the barrage in the bottom of the third with a 383-foot home run. Just two batters later, second baseman Ketel Marte sent a towering 428-foot homer out of the park, the longest of the four. Following shortly, first baseman Christian Walker added to the tally with a 395-foot blast. The historic inning reached its culmination when catcher Gabriel Moreno hammered a 420-foot home run, propelling the Diamondbacks to a 4-0 lead.5 / 5

As anticipated, the atmosphere at Chase Field reached a frenzy during the third inning. Let’s take a look at the experience from a fan’s point of view.

Following Moreno’s impressive home run, there was a sigh of relief among the fans as Dodgers manager Dave Roberts decided to remove Lance Lynn from the game. Lynn, at 36 years old, had a rather challenging outing, giving up four runs and six hits in just 2 2/3 innings, with only one strikeout to his name.

The Dodgers now face an uphill battle to keep their season alive, trailing 2-0 in the series against the dominant Diamondbacks.
