LOS ANGELES -- The Dodgers will make a "substantial" donation to aid Puerto Rico's relief effort from Hurricane Maria in the name of Enrique Hernandez, whose record-tying three-homer performance on Thursday helped the club clinch the National League Championship Series.

Hernandez, a native of Puerto Rico, tied postseason single-game records with the trio of home runs and seven RBIs against the Cubs at Wrigley Field in Game 5 of the NLCS presented by Camping World.
