Rangers’ Adolis Garcia hit by pitch and benches clear, sparking ejections; Jose Altuve hits go-ahead homer

Things got heated in the eighth inning of Game 5 of the American League Championship Series Friday.

Rangers outfielder Adolis Garcia crushed a go-ahead home run off Houston Astros pitcher Justin Verlander to give Texas a 4-2 lead. 

Garcia took some time to admire his clutch hit as he jogged around the bases.

When Garcia came back up to the plate in the bottom of the eighth inning, Astros pitcher Bryan Abreu plunked the Rangers outfielder. Garcia took exception to the pitch and had a heated exhange with Houston catcher Martin Maldonado.

The Astros lead the series 3-2, and it shifts back to Houston for Game 6 Sunday.
