Gabriel Moreno socked a home run and was one of four players to bat in a run as the Arizona Diamondbacks leveled the World Series once again with a 9-1 win over the Texas Rangers.
Moreno’s home run opened the scoring in the top of the fourth, when he hit a solo shot 413 feet to center field at Globe Life Park in Arlington, Texas.
The series now turns to Phoenix, where the Diamondbacks will host the next three games – and will hope to win all three to win their second title.
Arizona also rode a dominant pitching performance from starter Merrill Kelly, who went seven innings and gave up one run on three hits while striking out nine.
In this game, Arizona infielder Ketel Marte batted 1-for-5, but set the MLB record for the longest postseason hitting streak at 18 games.
