ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Adolis García homered leading off the bottom of the ninth inning, giving the Texas Rangers a 3-2 victory over the Washington Nationals.

The Cuban slugger matched Corey Seager for the team lead with 15 homers when he drilled a 2-2 slider from reliever Kyle Finnegan into the Washington bullpen, just to the left of the hitting background in center field.

Nelson Cruz had a tying two-run homer for the Nationals against for his former team in the sixth inning.
