His latest magic act came in Wednesday’s series finale with the LA Angels in Anaheim, hitting a clutch, go-ahead three-run home run in the contest, which the Texas Rangers would go on to win by score of 7-4.
Garcia’s blast was his third of the season, as well as his third go-ahead homer, although every Rangers fan knows that he really has four home runs.
But yeah, every home run that the box office 28-year-old has hit in his latest MLB stint has been of the clutch variety. It’s truly something to behold!
Adolis Garcia has been clutch for the Texas Rangers so far in 2021.
We seriously believe that Garcia has a case to make on behalf of himself being MLB’s most clutch player at the moment!
The passion that Garcia exudes on the field is unmatched on the Rangers, if not in all of baseball. He makes baseball a pure joy to watch, and is infusing energy into this clubhouse.
On the season, the outfielder is now hitting .250 with three home runs and eight RBI’s and an .873 OPS. That kind of production will have some staying power on this team.
As if that wasn’t enough fireworks, slugging first baseman Nate Lowe, who is still among the MLB leaderboards with his five home runs and 17 RBI’s this season, followed up his teammate with a solo blast of his own.
Adolis Garcia and Nate Lowe. We’re starting to like how the middle of the lineup is stacking up.
ALL of this happened after a quality start by one of the members of the American League’s top rotation in terms of ERA, Mike Foltynewicz (six innings pitched, three earned runs and six strikeouts).
With the series win in Anaheim, the Rangers secured their first road series win against an AL West opponent since 2019, and improved to 9-4 against their division rivals since 2020.
Sorry, Mike Trout, but it appears there’s a new Ranger (pun intended) in town in this rivalry!
As for the road ahead, the Texas Rangers will head to the South Side of Chicago for a weekend series with the Chicago White Sox at Guaranteed Rate Field after a Thursday off-day.
At 9-10, this team is looking scrappy, battle-tested and a lot of fun to watch (and aren’t in the AL West cellar!). Let’s hope they can keep riding this wave into another series win in Chicago!
