Number 4 moment
Carlos Beltran turned back the clock and provided a spark of his golden glove outfield abilities for all to see!
In another come from behind win that saw an explosive 3 shot homer from Carlos Gomez, Carlos Beltran was mentioned in Gomez’s post game speech. Gomez described that when you see a guy like Beltran do the things he was doing then it inspires you to do the best that you can too.
Here is what Carlos Beltran did, he made a draw dropping dive in right field to help a struggling A.J. Griffin. Laying completely out to catch this pop fly had the rest of the Rangers giving him props once back in the dugout. It is no secret that Beltran is not the outfielder that he used to be but he does still enjoy playing in the field. That was not the only thing though, Beltran also stole his first base since 2014. His blazing speed allowed for this to happen, just kidding I don’t believe there was even a throw on the play.
Beltran was the run that tied the game up in the bottom of the 6th just before the other elder Adrian Beltre scored the leading run just behind him. Beltran went 2/3 at the plate during that game and his jolt of youthfulness provided why this team is so much fun to play for.
