Different teams, same Adrian Beltre

Monday was the third time in his career that Beltre has had a multi-homer game that included a walk-off home run. He's the 10th player in MLB history to have at least three career multi-HR games that included a walk-off HR, but the first to do it with three different teams, the Elias Sports Bureau reports.

Jayson Stark ESPN Senior Writer
