Bloomquist getting it done in postseason

Willie Bloomquist is 2 for 3 and has scored two runs for the Arizona Diamondbacks, who look like they’re going to extend the NLDS series to a Game 4.

The shortstop from Port Orchard stole second in the first inning after a leadoff single and scored.

He singled again in the fifth and scored on a home run by somebody named Paul Goldschmidt. Diamondbacks leading Brewers 7-1.

Bloomquist is hitting .364 with three stolen bases.

He played in 845 Major League Baseball games and has 2,226 career at bats. He’s been a utility player his whole career, and now at age 33 and in his 10th big-league season, he’s getting a taste of what postseason baseball is all about.

UPDATE: Bloomquist singles again; he’s now 3 for 4 and hitting .417 in the three playoff games.
