Adolis García, well aware of the impending brilliance, wasted no time.

The instant that 1-2 fastball met his bat, he commenced a triumphant home run trot, his jubilant shouts resonating throughout the dugout. His exuberance was more than justified, for the 418-foot three-run blast he unleashed catapulted the Texas Rangers to a commanding 6-0 lead in the second inning of Game 3.

It was a pivotal moment, sealing the fate of the American League Division Series with a resounding 7-1 victory over the Baltimore Orioles on Tuesday night, all while concluding a remarkable five-run inning that effectively sent Orioles starter Dean Kremer to the showers.

The Rangers had already seized an early advantage with Corey Seager's mammoth 445-foot home run in the opening frame. This marked Seager's eighth postseason homer at Globe Life Field, with seven of them coming in 2020 with the Dodgers.

The Texas crowd, relishing their first home playoff game in the ballpark, reveled in the spectacle. As the second inning unfolded, Josh Jung's single and Marcus Semien's double set the stage for what would become a pivotal moment.

Baltimore decided not to risk pitching to Seager again, intentionally walking the formidable left-handed slugger to load the bases. This strategic move led Seager to tie Barry Bonds for the most walks in a Division Series, a noteworthy achievement in itself.


The drama didn't end there. Mitch Garver's two-run double further widened the gap, and Adolis García once again made the Orioles pay for their decisions.

His three-run home run not only scored Seager and Garver but also mirrored the jubilant celebration from his walk-off blast against Minnesota on September 3. In the end, it was a remarkable performance that propelled the Rangers to a triumphant victory and secured their place in the next stage of the postseason.
