Jurickson Profar lifts Texas Rangers with huge walk-off home run

  • David Whitlock

The American League Wild Card race remains full of drama as we enter the final weekend of the MLB regular season.  Texas Rangers IF Jurickson Profar provided a jolt to the Texas Rangers chances with a huge walk-off home run to start the 9th inning against the Los Angeles Angels.  Watch as Profar sends a Michael Cohn offering into the cheap seats giving the Rangers a much needed win to keep pace with the Cleveland Indians and Tampa Bay Rays (video courtesy of MLB.com):

The Rangers, Indians, and Rays are competing for two spots, with the Tribe and Rays holding a 1 game edge over the Rangers.  Without the win last night, it would have been 2 games with 3 to play, nearly impossible.  The Rangers have three more against the Angels, while the Indians play the Twins, and the Rays play the Blue Jays (all bottom division teams).  Only the Rangers are at home, and bolstered by a 3-game sweep against the Astros and now this home run, may need to win out to play baseball beyond Sunday.

David Whitlock - manager

David (a.k.a. Longhorndave or lhd_on_sports) joined the staff late in the 2012 season and moved to Site Manager in early 2013. A lifelong Houston Astros fan (and mini-season ticket holder for 9 years) he attends 20+ games per year. A statistics freak, David still keeps score the "old fashioned way" on occasion (and has kept manual score of World Series games since 1986 and retains the sheets). He was a featured guest weekly on the Phil Naessens Show. He is also a Texas Longhorns alumnus and huge football and baseball fan of his alma mater. When he isn't watching or writing about baseball, he works as a contractor at NASA Johnson Space Center. He lives by the mantra "a bad day at the ballpark is better than a good day anywhere else."
