PHOENIX (WJHL) — Elizabethton-native Evan Carter and the Texas Rangers won the World Series by defeating the Arizona Diamondbacks 5–0 in Game 5.
The 21-year-old former Cyclone made a sliding catch in the second inning to prevent extra bases and connected with a pitch in the seventh for a double.
After the Rangers brought in a run to gain a 1-0 lead, Carter got hung up between third base and home plate and would be tagged out.
In the World Series, Carter logged six hits in 21 at-bats. He also set the record for most doubles in a single postseason with nine.
It’s the Rangers’ first World Series victory.
