Pop the champagne because there’s a new Major League Baseball champion. This Wednesday the Texas Rangers were crowned in the 2023 World Series, winning 5-0 on the scoreboard in Game 5 and 4-1 in the overall balance of victories, thus bringing the first title in their history of showcases.
Unlike last Tuesday’s 18-run total, Wednesday’s game moved to the scoreboard in the seventh inning, which was effectively decisive for the D’Backs. A single by Mitch Garver brought in Corey Seager to make it 1-0 Rangers.
With the tension evident at Chase Field in Arizona, watching their team collapse in the World Series with losses in all of their home games, there was not the slightest sign of a response from the Diamondbacks. In fact, the ninth reel turned everything into a Texas beatdown.
When the D’Backs needed cool-headed and flawless pitching, Paul Sewald was struck out with four runs conceded in just 0.2 innings, the season finale.
The Texas Rangers are champions; the key moment
A ball by Jonah Heim that looked like it could be controlled ended up under the glove and between the legs of Alek Thomas. Error on the board and two Texas runs scored by Josh Jung and Nathaniel Lowe.
Immediately, a home run by Marcus Semien that drove in two more at the plate formed the final 5-0 for the crowning of the Texas Rangers, making history only the third team in Major League history to become champions two years after losing more than 100 games. at a regular time.
How many World Series titles do the Rangers have?
The Rangers lost the 2010 and 2011 World Series to the San Francisco Giants and St. Louis Cardinals, respectively. Those were their only two trips to the Fall Classic, until 2023 they can proclaim themselves champions of the best baseball in the world.
