Things got worse for the Arizona Diamondbacks in the third inning of Game 4, allowing another 5 runs. Two Rangers’ players hit singles, and the Diamondbacks had to change pitchers again. With Jonah Heim and Travis Jankowski’s home runs, the Rangers took a big 7-0 lead.

The end of the ninth inning was desperate for the D-backs. They tried to tie the game with a couple of runs but fell short with a final score of 7-11. Now the Rangers have a 3-1 lead and can afford to lose a game to return home and win the World Series there.

The Rangers will look to close out the World Series in Game 5 on Wednesday night in Phoenix. The Diamondbacks will look to force the series back to Texas with a victory in Game 5.
