Rookie Luis Barrera hits walk-off homer, first career blast takes A to spectacular comeback

Luis Barrera probably shouldn’t have been in the batsman’s box in the ninth inning on Saturday afternoon at the Coliseum.

The Angels, close to Russell Iglesias, needed just eight pitches to retire Seth Brown and Sean Murphy, recording two quick outs against a pair of AK power threats. But with his team trailing 3–1, Barrera took his first at-bat of the game anyway, as Ramon Loreno’s double and Christian Bethancourt’s run brought the winning run to the plate.

The 1-1 slider Iglesias threw to Barrera was not necessarily a strike, but it was not. The left-handed hitting outfielder turned up the pitch and blew it into the right-field bleachers for a walk-off, three-run home run in a thrilling 4-3 comeback win for A.

“Actually, I have no words right now,” Barrera said through a Spanish-language interpreter. “I have nothing to say right now. There’s a lot of emotion going on right now. I’m really happy to be part of the team, to be part of the ball club.”
