If Soler monopolized the spotlight with his key blow to Atlanta’s triumph, the Venezuelan of the Houston Astros, Jose Altuve, with another home run, rose to the runner-up of players with the most home runs in the postseason.
Soler and the short stop Dansby Swanson hit back-to-back home runs for the Braves, who beat the Astros 3-2 and become one triumph to get the World Series title, which is now 3-1 in favor of the Atlanta team.
Exactly three months after the day the Braves called up Soler in those final moments before the trade deadline, Atlanta called up the outfielder for a pinch-bat, which marked the Game 4 win of the “Fall Classic”.
His four-corner hit sent the Astros’ left fielder, his compatriot Yordan Alvarez, to crash violently against the fence, but without being able to reach the ball.

The Puerto Rican traveled four times to the batter’s box and connected once, ending with a tow.
The merit of Altuve is that he achieved a playoff record with seven home runs in the first inning.
Altuve’s first three postseason home runs came in the same game, as he posted a three-homer performance in Game 1 of the 2017 Division Series against the Boston Red Sox.
While Altuve has had his share of home runs in the first inning, his most memorable explosion came in Game 6 of the 2019 American League Championship Series, when he sent Houston to the World Series with a home run off the c.ubano Aroldis Chapman, with which he secured the pennant.
Altuve’s home run to help Houston finish in Game 4 of the 2021 Division Series gave him at least one home run in five consecutive postseason runs.
Then it came to the mark of 20 career home runs in the postseason with a two-run shot in the American League Championship Series in Game 1 against the Red Sox before hitting a solo home run in Game 4 to set the record for most career postseason home runs by an infielder.
But Altuve wasn’t done yet, hitting two more home runs in the World Series against the Braves, a solo shot in Game 2 and another solo home run in Game 4.
With his bat power, Altuve reaches 23 home runs in postseason play, surpassing the Puerto Rican Bernie Williams (22) to stay with the sub-leadership in that section, only behind the Dominican Manny Ramírez, who added 29 in his career. (D)
