Ross racking up heady historical numbers

Ross racking up heady historical numbers

PHILADELPHIA -- So far this postseason, Cody Ross has established himself as the top clutch hitter in either league.

The Giants outfielder has four go-ahead RBIs, twice as many as the next players on the list -- the New York Yankees' Lance Berkman, Texas' Josh Hamilton and Atlanta's Brian McCann. Ross' total is the highest in Giants franchise history for a single postseason, though keep in mind that the postseason consisted only of the World Series through 1968. The League Championship Series was added in 1969 and the Division Series started in 1995.

Ross also has three game-winning RBIs, joining Barry Bonds (2002) as the only other Giant to accumulate that many, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.

With his effort Saturday in the Giants' 4-3 Game 1 victory, Ross became the second player to homer twice in his LCS debut. Minnesota's Gary Gaetti (1987) was the only other player to accomplish this.

"I just try to take pride in going up there every single at-bat and trying to get something going for my team, whether it's drawing a walk or hitting a home run," Ross said.
