Randy Arozaren did it again.
Field outfielder Tampa Bay Rays hit a double race at the bottom of the first half to Lance McCullers Jr. to give the Races a faster lead over the Houston Astros in the 7th game of the American League Championship in San Diego on Saturday.
It was Arozarena̵7;s seventh home run of the season, exploding 416 feet to the right center from a fast ball at a speed of 2-2, 97 miles per hour. He became only the fourth player to score at least seven home runs before the World Series, meeting Daniel Murphy of Metz 2015 and BG Upton of Race in 2008 at seven and sitting one behind Carlos Beltran’s “eight”. for “Astros-2004”. Arozarena had an extra round to add to his total, but he didn’t take a homer against the Blue Jazz in the wild card series, hitting three against the Yankees in the division series and now four in the ALCS.

Although Beltran’s Astros failed to reach the World Series, Beltran shares a season-high overall record in eight home runs with Barry Bonds (2002’s Giants) and Nelson Cruz (Rangers 2011). In the 14th playoff match, Arozaren reached .404 / .456 / .904, and his 47 overall bases are already second for last season, finishing 50th among David Freese’s 2011 cardinals. The .397 free kick that season was the MVP of the National League Championships and the World Series.
“Flights” bought the 25-year-old Cuban in the off-season from the “Cardinals”, abandoning the agreement of Matthew Liberator in the first round of 2018. Arozarena passed the positive test for COVID-19 and missed the start of the truncated regular season, having played his first game for “Tampa Bay” until August 30. In September, he ran seven home runs, showing more power than his second-league record predicted (he hit 15 home runs in juveniles in 2019 in 343 at-bats)
