In what may be remembered as the pivotal moment of the 2010 ALCS, Bengie Molina trotted to the plate in the sixth inning of Game 4 against New York's A.J. Burnett after a controversial intentional walk to David Murphy. Molina lined the first pitch he saw into the left field seats, silencing Yankee Stadium and giving the Rangers a 5-3 lead. They added five more over the next three innings to cruise to a 10-3 victory and a 3-1 series lead. In Game 6, the Rangers won comfortably again to reach the World Series for the first time in franchise history.
