The Dodgers started off strong as they took down the Padres in game one of the NLDS and look to take a commanding 2-0 lead. The Dodgers were able to control the lead thanks to Trea Turner and Will Smith who finished the night with two hits apiece.
Smith helped his team win, but also put himself in the Dodgers record books for most multi-hit games in the postseason among catchers. Smith tied Dodgers all-time great and Hall of Fame catcher, Roy Campanella, and current Dodgers catcher, Austin Barnes, with five multi-hit postseason games.

To be in the same breath as Campanella, a three time NL MVP, and an 11-time-total All-Star (three time All-Star in Negro League) surely is a great feeling and is something Smith should be proud of. However, with the ways things have been looking for Smith it would be a safe bet to say he will eventually break the record.
While The Fresh Prince is breaking records, the Dodgers slowly breakaway at the postseason to hopefully win there eighth World Series and second in three years. The records are a great career accolade, but Smith and the Dodgers have there eyes on the biggest prize to come at the end of the season.
Smith will look to have plenty more opportunities to help his team win and break the Dodgers all time catchers record.
