LUMBERJACKS

Ezequiel Carrera, Troy Tulowitzki, Kevin Pillar and Edwin Encarnacion hit home runs for the Blue Jays Friday, but their 4-HR effort didn’t even crack the top five for most dingers by a team in a postseason game. The leaders:

KID’S STUFF

By hitting a 430-foot blast against Max Scherzer on Friday, 22-year-old Corey Seager became the youngest Dodger to homer in the postseason. Dodgers Pistol Pete Reiser, Mike Marshall and Mike Scioscia also hit postseason homers before their 23rd birthday.

112 YEARS AGO SUNDAY

Solly Hofman’s one-out single brought home Frank Schulte with the tying run and Frank Chance with the lead run as the Cubs scored six times in the top of the ninth to beat the Tigers, 10-6, in Game 1 of the 1908 World Series. Only 10,812 were in attendance at Detroit’s Bennett Park.

STORMY WEATHER

The postponement of yesterday’s Nationals-Dodgers game brings to mind the famous rain delay of Game 5 in the weather-ravaged 2008 World Series between the Phillies and Rays. This game that started on Oct. 27 and concluded on Oct. 29 after being stopped in the bottom of the sixth, at 10:40 p.m. (MLB rules dictate that World Series games must be played to completion, so no rain-shortened games.) Although the game, a 4-3 Phillies victory, spanned three days, the official time of game is listed as 3 hours, 28 minutes.

ELITE EIGHT

Two of these eight teams will play for the 2016 world championship. Their last appearances, if any, in the Fall Classic:

1945 Cubs

1988 Dodgers

1993 Blue Jays

1997 Indians

2011 Rangers

2013 Red Sox

2014 Giants

Nationals, founded as the Montreal Expos in 1969, have never been to the World Series.
