Buster set a record (I think)

I'm not entirely sure about this but I think GDP³ wrote himself into the history books in Game 1 last night. 

Most put-outs recorded by a rookie playing catcher in his post-season debut.

14 - Buster Posey, S.F. - 2010 NLDS (Game 1)

13 - Andy Etchebarren, Balt. - 1966 WS (Game 1) {4gm +6+6+7=32 PO}

5 - Yogi Berra, N.Y.Y. - 1947 WS (Game 1) {6gm +6+2+6=17 PO, [recorded 3 total PO as RF in Games 6 and 7]}

5 - Yadier Molina, St.L. - 2004 NLCS (Game 4) {1gm =5 PO}

I can't recall even one of Lincecum's strikeouts needing a throw to first to get the batter. 

The numbers in curly braces are the by-game numbers for the rest of the player's debut post-season series. The records for first two and three games would belong to Etchebarren (19 and 25) and those may fall as well. 

I'm not finding any other rookie catchers to make the post-season, but if there are more, please add.
