ARLINTON, Texas – Adolis Garcia set a Rangers rookie record for home runs and doubled RBI and Brock Holt Texas by two runs for the first time in a 6-win victory over Los Angeles Angeles in the eighth innings of the series on Thursday.
Los Angeles two-way All-Star Shoei Ohtani, who has completed pitching this season, got his th RBI in his AL-top eighth triple as the Angels batted around in the first innings of five runs.
Holt’s double from right to left was not tied in the 100-losing Rangers game before Jimmy Hargate (2-2-3), who played four games for Texas earlier this season. After a one-out walk from Nick Solak and a double from DJ Peters, who had previously hit his 13th homer.
Peters had a three-run homer in the third, and Garcia’s 31st homer had a two-run blast in the fifth that went to the Rangers bullpen 400 feet above the right-center and pushed the All-Star outfielder’s RBI total to 90.
It was the first homer for Garcia after Pete Inquigilia set a record of 1 homemaker in 1 Garc. Garcia matched RBI with a two-run lead in the opening match of the series on Tuesday which Inquiglia got in its rookie season.
Spencer Patton (2-2), the fourth Texas pitcher, threw two goalless innings with three strikeouts. Joe Barlow worked 1-2 against the heart of the Angels lineup for his 11th save on 12 occasions for the ninth and his eighth save in September.
Ohtani finished with 2 wickets in 5th place and advanced to the alert track on the left with a flyout from the ninth to the opposite field, hitting .259 with three games remaining. He had a great double on a slow grounder on the left side of Infield, and he made another run to give him 101 for the season. The night before, Ohtani became the first AL player to reach 45 homers, 100 runs and 25 steals in the same season.
Brandon Marsh started the game with a single and immediately moved from triple to right field. Taylor Ward added two runs to the first five-run batsman Glenn Auto, who pitched the pit in his two innings.
Angels starter Alex Cobb has allowed just three homers in 11 innings this season, with two outs in the third inning before Peters’ 36-foot drive, and he also let go of Garcia Blast. The right-hander walks five and two while making five of seven hits in five innings.
Angels: Ward leaves the game with the right abductor tight. Juan Laggers took charge of the left field at the bottom of the second inning and led his RBI singles Los Angeles to a 5-3 lead in the fifth.
ANGELES: Los Angeles ended its season with a three-game series in Seattle.
Rangers: Texas ends the season with a three-match home series against Cleveland, which will be his last match as an Indian before becoming a guardian.
