Similar to how Game 3 started, the Rangers wasted no time getting the long ball going.

And they did so against the Diamondbacks bullpen, which had been excellent all October long.

In the 2nd inning, despite it looking like for a moment that they would get out of a jam, the Diamondbacks allowed the first run of the night on a passed ball with two outs.

Then, the floodgates opened for another nine runs over the next inning and a third.

All of the runs came with two outs.

Leading the offensive rampage were Marcus Semien and Corey Seager, who combined for seven RBIs.

Six of the Rangers eleven runs came off home runs, which has been a reoccurring theme all postseason long.

As for the Diamondbacks offense, there was not much of it until the 8th inning.

Trailing 11-1, the Diamondbacks put up four runs to finally give five fans something to cheer about.

The lone big hit came off the bat of Lourdes Gurriel Jr. in the form of a three-run home run.

They did tack on a couple more in the ninth, but these runs proved to be insufficient as it was too little too late.

Strangely enough, Arizona outhit their opponent 12-11.

However, without the longball, the Diamondbacks still suffered a heartbreaking 11-7 loss.

Now, the D-backs trail the Rangers 3-1 in the World Series.

Such a deficit has not been overcome since the 2016 Chicago Cubs.

Game 5 will be tomorrow at 5 p.m. Arizona time. It will be Zac Gallen vs. Nathan Eovaldi on the mound.
