The Best Texas Rangers home runs in the World Series

These next two home runs are arguably the two biggest in Rangers franchise history. Corey Seager's monstrous blast in the bottom of the ninth in Game 1 of the World Series signaled a new age for the Rangers. Having been down since the middle of the game, the Rangers were looking for some ninth-inning heroics. Seager's game-tying home run off Paul Sewald in the bottom of the ninth was one of my most exhilarating moments as a Rangers fan. I knew they could win the whole thing after Seager hit this home run.

That home run of course made possible yet another from Adolis Garcia. As Joe Davis said, "And the legend grows!" as El Bombi sent a walk-off home run opposite field to bring Game 1 home for the Rangers. This home run gave Adolis the all-time single postseason RBI record surpassing what David Freese did in 2011. It also cemented Garcia as a Rangers legend. I don't think any Ranger fan will forget how truly incredible he was during this postseason run.

To bring this "Best of" to a close, I have to highlight Marcus Semien's home run in the 9th inning of Game 5 of the World Series. The Rangers captain had his struggles during the postseason, but he came alive in Games 4 and 5 of the World Series. His home run was the dagger. As I watched that ball fly out to left center field, I knew they had done it. Semien's reaction rounding first all but confirmed it. With that game-sealing home run, the Rangers championship drought was over.
