Paul Goldschmidt hit a three-run homer in the first inning and Andrew McCutchen loved it

It's been a postseason of first-inning dingers so far. After three long balls were hammered in the first inning of the Yankees' 8-4 victory over the Twins on Tuesday, Paul Goldschmidt started off the scoring with his own blast to give the D-backs a 3-0 lead over the Rockies on Wednesday. Those three runs proved important as Arizona defeated Colorado, 11-8, to advance to face the Dodgers in the NLDS. 

The dinger ended an 0-for-17 stretch that Goldschmidt carried into the postseason -- perhaps worrying some baseball pundits. 

One pundit that wasn't concerned? Andrew McCutchen. That's right, the one-time MVP and five-time All-Star is spending his postseason the same way you and I do: By tweeting about it. 

Hopefully McCutchen is planning on live-tweeting the playoffs -- something that seems possible after he tweeted following Aaron Judge's Wild Card dinger.

But be careful if you try to rake him with a tweet. One fan learned the hard way that when you come for the Cutch, you better not miss. 

Tune in to see the D-backs take on the Dodgers in Game 1 of the NLDS on Friday at 10:30 p.m. ET / 7:30 p.m. MST on TBS.
