Grant Balfour chasing more records for Australia

Oakland A's right-handed closing pitcher Grant Balfour (pictured above) has equalled the record for number of MLB Postseason appearances by an Australian. Left-handed pitcher Graeme Lloyd made seven postseason appearances with the New York Yankees between 1996 and 1998, and Balfour achieved his seventh with a win against the Detroit Tigers on October 5, 2013. With the American League Divisional Series against Detroit tied at one game a piece Balfour potentially has the opportunity to surpass Lloyd over the next few days.
