Daniel Murphy meet Lou Gehrig.

For those of you with the common sense not to disparage the term, Met Daniel Murphy has been hot in the 2015 tournament.  Murphy has tied a record with homers in five consecutive tournament games, none in the finals, which is the current round analogous to the old World Series.

Below are the season leaders in World Series and "League" Series in OPS, HR, RBI.

Lou Gehrig's performance in the 1928 World Series stands out.  In addition to Gehrig holding the WS record for OPS at 2.433, he also holds the record for SLG at 1.727.  Murphy has OPS of 1.322 in 2015 in the eight games he has played so far: 5 in the first round and three in round two.
