2020 Topps Now - Edwin Rios' Leadoff Two-Run Homer in Extras - #34

Edwin's heroics last night earned him a 2020 Topps Now card. It celebrates a first in the game -- no doubt a future Baseball trivia question that is sure to stump fans many years in the future.

Edwin Rios became the first ballplayer in the games history to hit a leadoff two-run home run

It was also the eventual game winner for the Dodgers -- sweeping the Trashtro's in a short two-game series.

Go here to check out the card and to purchase. Below is what's written on the reverse:
The 2020 MLB season has accounted for many firsts in its small sample size, but one that might look odd to future historians could be Edwin's lead-off, two-run home run on Wednesday night. The rookie's blast gave the Dodgers a 4-2 lead in the top of the thirteenth inning against the Astros in Houston, the first home run of its kind. With Enrique Hernandez beginning the inning at second base, thanks to the new automatic runner rule, Rios homered off of Astros reliever Cy Sneed and that was all the Dodgers needed to win.
