HOUSTON (AP) – From one knee, Adrian Beltre cleared the Crawford Boxes.

The Rangers slugger dropped down to get to Brad Peacock’s pitch and crushed his 30th home run of the season from a kneel Tuesday night, giving Texas a 1-0 lead over the Houston Astros in the second inning.

MLB.com’s Statcast estimated the homer would have traveled 425 feet if it didn’t clank off the wall beyond the seats above the left-field wall.

This wasn’t Beltre’s first homer from one knee, including when he dirtied his pant leg while homering in Game 5 of the 2011 World Series.

It was the 443rd homer of Beltre’s career, and this is his fifth season with 30 or more homers.
