D-Backs' heart breaks in 11th inning

If you were to pick two teams that would have gone to the World Series this year, you would not have picked the D-Backs or the Rangers. Both teams inched and crawled their way into the postseason and caused havoc as both organizations had their bats swinging aggressively to come out on top in their series.

This was the first time since 2001 that the D-Backs entered a World Series and boy they were thrilled to be one of the two teams left standing. They knew that they had to take risks and let things come to them in Game 1. Things did not go as plan to start the game for Arizona, Zac Gallen allowed two hits down left field, which brought in runs for the Rangers. Like the D-Backs stated prior to the game that patience would be the theme for them. After the Rangers got their runs in, they did not panic, but hit the button for offense in the third. Corbin Carroll lit it up with a one-out triple, which added three runs for them to take the lead, 3-2.

Tonight, the offense exploded and got the job done offensively, but let's talk about their pitching. Arizona got out of some tough spots and did not let the Rangers' offense do any damage until Corey Seager hit a home run to spring two guys home and forced extra innings. Adolis Garcia broke the D-Backs spirit as he hit a go-ahead run in the 11th to take Game 1, 6-5.
