What a game! There was a massive Encarnacion home run, a huge Chris Davis 3-run bomb, the first career home run by Munenori Kawasaki, and a walk-off win to extend the winning streak to nine.
I have been to great games before, but Friday night’s game was one of the best – if not the best – that I have ever experienced live. The weather was beautiful, the roof was open, and the drama was high.
The best part of the game by far, however, was the crowd. There has been a lot written about Jays fans this year – they have been aggressive, poorly behaved, awful. But last night was amazing. The atmosphere was electric. There was a buzz in the air the entire game, and after Kawasaki’s bomb, the place went nuts. Chants of “Kawasaki!” were probably the loudest I have ever heard when he came to the plate in the 9th.
you may expect, in a game of that nature there are bound to be some classic fans. Check out some shots below. My personal favourite – by far – is Kawasaki man (the incorrect spelling makes it that much better)!
