They don't call him "The Legend" for nothing.

Leury García helped the White Sox erase an early 5-1 deficit in Game 3 of the ALDS Sunday night, capping off a five-run third inning by crushing a go-ahead three-run home run.

García's home run was only the White Sox' second extra-base hit this series. Yasmani Grandal hit the first — in the same inning. His solo home run started the rally.

After Grandal's home run, Yoán Moncada and Gavin Sheets reached on back-to-back two-out singles to bring up García. 

García went up 2-0 in the count on Astros starter Luis Garcia, whom Dusty Baker pulled from the game mid-at-bat.

Reliever Yimi García surrendered the home run moments later.

García drew the start in right field for the White Sox Sunday.
