Game 1 of the World Series matchup between the Texas Rangers and the Arizona Diamondbacks kicked off on Friday night. And it did not disappoint fans watching at home, ending in dramatic fashion with a walk-off home run on the biggest stage.

Things started to heat up in the bottom of the ninth inning, where it looked like the Diamondbacks were going to take the first game of the series.

They had a 5-3 lead going into the ninth inning with closer Paul Sewald coming into the close the show. However, Rangers’ star shortstop Corey Seager had other ideas, hitting a two-run home run to tie the game and force extra innings.

It turned out to be a huge, momentum-swinging home run from Seager. Both teams would fail to score in the tenth inning, and the Rangers would hold the Diamondbacks scoreless in the top of the 11th inning.

That set the stage for Rangers star outfielder Adolis García — who has unquestionably been the best player on the team this postseason — to come to the plate with one out in the bottom of the 11th.

And right on cue, Garcia proceeded to take Diamondbacks reliever Miguel Castro deep to right field for a walk-off home run to give the Rangers a 1-0 lead in the series.

The terrific call of the home run from Fox’s Joe Davis sums things up perfectly. The legend does indeed grow for Adolis García.

The MLB world certainly had plenty to say about García’s clutch moment, praising him on social media.

García is in the midst of perhaps the greatest stretch of play in MLB postseason history. This home run marks his fifth straight game with a home run this postseason. It also broke an MLB record for the most RBIs in a postseason for any player.

If this is any indication of how the rest of the series will go, fans watching at home are certainly in for a treat.
