Cubs, Marlins break NLCS homer record



By The Associated Press

MIAMI - Aramis Ramirez's two home runs Saturday night were the 15th and 16th of the NL championship series between the Chicago Cubs and Florida Marlins, who set a record for most homers in an NLCS.

Ramirez hit a grand slam in the first inning off Marlins starter Dontrelle Willis and a solo shot in the seventh off reliever Nate Bump.

The teams broke the previous record of 14 set last year by San Francisco and St. Louis.

The Marlins have six homers, all in the first two games at Wrigley Field. The Cubs have hit 10, including two by Sammy Sosa.

The postseason record for home runs in a series is 22, set by the New York Yankees and Seattle in 1995.
