Chris Taylor saved the Los Angeles Dodgers' season with a heroic three-homer performance in Game 5 of the NLCS against the Atlanta Braves on Thursday.

"I think any time you do something cool, when you do it in Dodger Stadium, it makes it that much sweeter," Taylor said about his curtain call, according to Juan Toribio of MLB.com. "I think this is a special place and these fans are awesome, and for it to happen for the first time on this stage in front of this crowd, it was a special moment."

He added: "When you look at all the years playing for the Dodgers, it's all these big postseason games that are most special to me. I think these are moments that we're going to look back on for the rest of our lives, and it's pretty cool."

Taylor, who's eligible for free agency at the end of the 2021 campaign, is the first player in MLB history to hit three home runs in a playoff elimination game.

Here are all three round-trippers:
