As a casual baseball fan, it was exciting to have an O’s game in September mean something, and last night was a lot of fun. I tuned into the game just after the rain delay and monitored the Yankees/Rays online.
At midnight, I heard church bells ringing down the street, and, next thing I knew, Davis doubled, Reimold doubled, and Andino singled home the winning run. A few minutes later, Evan Longoria beat the Yankees with a walk-off homer, and the Red Sox epic collapse was complete.
For O’s fans, it was great being reminded what a meaningful game feels like this late in the season. It’s been a long time. It was our Fall Classic.
