The Texas Rangers are headed back to the AL Championship Series, thanks to a power surge by Adrian Beltre that few players in major league history have matched.

Beltre hit three straight home runs and the defending AL Champions advanced again, beating the Tampa Bay Rays 4-3 in Game 4 of the ALDS to win their playoff matchup. Texas ended the Rays’ remarkable run to the AL wild-card spot, and will play for the pennant against the winner of the Detroit Tigers-New York Yankees series.

Beltre became just the seventh player to homer three times in a postseason game, and the first since Adam Kennedy of the Angels in 2002. Babe Ruth, Reggie Jackson and George Brett also are on the list.
