ARLINGTON, Texas — Mike Napoli's(notes) big home run during Sunday's Game 4 really seemed like a wiffle ball moment, the type of blast you'd use a fat and red bat to launch the mother of all get-around homers.
However, that backyard bit paled in comparison to Adrian Beltre(notes) getting down on his usual knee to hit a game-tying home run off Chris Carpenter in the sixth inning of Monday's Game 5. Beltre has been known to execute the one-knee clout better than anybody, but this was its debut on the game's greatest stage.

One more thing: It's worth noting that sometimes Beltre's prayers goes unanswered. Here he is during a much less successful dip in the fourth inning.
