In Game 3 on Monday, Kyle Schwarber hit a grand slam in the 3rd inning off Jose Urquidy to extend the Red Sox lead to 6-0.

With the towering home run, the Red Sox became the first MLB team ever to hit three grand slams in a single postseason series. They are one of just two teams ever to hit three grand slams in a single postseason.

Schwarber, who is no stranger to postseason home runs, has hit three so far this October. In his career, he has nine in 97 at-bats in the postseason.

With Christian Arroyo, J.D. Martinez and Rafael Devers each hitting a long ball later in the game, the Red Sox lead all teams this postseason in home runs with 20. The Astros are the next closest with nine.
