You have likely heard the Joe Buck, Jon Miller, and Dan Shulman calls of Travis Ishikawa’s pennant-winning home run on Thursday night, but here’s the Spanish-language one from KTRB in San Francisco. It’s pretty great.
I won’t claim to know all of the words the announcer was saying, but it doesn’t really matter. The emotion speaks for itself and transcends whatever language barrier might exist.

The Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal reports that the Rangers and pitcher Jordan Lyles have agreed to a contract. ESPN’s Jeff Passan provided the details, reporting that it is a two-year, $16 million deal.
Lyles, 29, split last season between the Pirates and Brewers, performing much better with the latter. Overall, he compiled a 4.15 ERA with a 146 strikeouts and 55 walks across 141 innings. It was a return to full-time starting for Lyles, who had performed mostly as a reliever from 2016-18.
The Rangers also inked Kyle Gibson to a three-year, $30 million contract last week. Gibson and Lyles will join a rotation that also includes Mike Minor and Lance Lynn as well as youngster Kolby Allard.
