Prince Fielder had just ripped a two-run homer to right field Friday night to pull the Rangers into a 2-2 tie with the Cleveland Indians at Globe Life Park.
Adrian Beltre quickly followed with a 413-foot blast to straight away center field to give Texas the 3-2 early lead in the first. He is tied with Shin-Soo Choo for the team lead with five homers this season.
It’s Beltre’s 400th-career homer. He’s the 52nd player in Major League history with at least 400 homers. He’s fourth among active players. He trails Hall of Famer Duke Snider (407) for 51st all-time. He needs 13 more to move ahead of Alfono Soriano with 413 and into the Top 50 all-time.
It was Beltre’s 80th homer at Globe Life Park, the most at any park in the league.
