ARLINGTON — The inning-by-inning summary at mlb.com Tuesday night shows that Nathaniel Lowe lined out to left field to open the second inning of Game 3 of the American League Championship Series.
Click on the outcome, though, and a much different story emerges.
The Rangers first baseman saw 15 pitches from Orioles right-hander Dean Kremer. In the age of the pitch clock, they had choice but to keep attacking each other.
“I ran out of gas there pretty early,” Lowe said.
What he didn’t know then, but what his teammates and manager Bruce Bochy thought, is that he had just delivered the at-bat of the game.
