Thrilling World Series Game 4: Rangers dominate Diamondbacks in a Halloween spectacle. Unmissable highlights and surprises!
In Phoenix, the World Series showdown between the Texas Rangers and the Arizona Diamondbacks intensifies with Texas aiming to extend their 2-1 series lead. After a triumphant 3-1 victory on Monday, the Rangers boast an impressive 9-0 record on the road this postseason, fueled by Corey Seager’s commanding home run and a stellar bullpen performance following Max Scherzer’s early exit.
Game 4 is poised to be a bullpen-centric clash, featuring Andrew Heaney for the Rangers against Arizona’s Joe Mantiply. Adolis García, the Rangers’ slugger and ALCS MVP, is absent from the Game 4 lineup due to left side tightness, marking his first playoff game absence. García, alongside pitcher Max Scherzer, has been ruled out for the remainder of the World Series.
In the midst of the action, Ketel Marte sets a new MLB record with a 20-game postseason hit streak, while chaos is averted on the basepaths thanks to Rangers catcher Jonah Heim. Halloween spirit permeates the atmosphere, with Arizona’s mascot D. Baxter the Bobcat donning a “Toy Story” costume.
The game unfolds with Texas executing small ball plays, Josh Jung’s double, and Marcus Semien’s two-out, two-run triple contributing to a 3-0 lead. Corey Seager continues his World Series dominance with another two-run homer, solidifying his status as the MLB shortstop with the most World Series home runs.
Travis Jankowski steps up in place of the injured García, delivering a two-run single, and Semien follows with a three-run home run, propelling the Rangers to a commanding 10-0 lead. The festive Halloween ambiance extends to the stands, with costumed fans adding flair to the Chase Field atmosphere.
