The Cleveland Guardians are one win away from advancing to the ALCS, and fans had the loudest celebration over it on Saturday night.
If you missed the Cleveland Guardians walking off the New York Yankees last night, chances are you might have heard it.
The Cleveland Guardians are just one win away from advancing to the ALCS. They defeated the New York Yankees on Saturday night to go 2-1 in the series, and fans had the loudest and most epic celebration over it.
With the Guardians trailing the Yankees at home in Game 3 of the ALDS, Oscar Gonzalez hit a two-run single with two outs in the bottom of the ninth to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat and give Cleveland a series lead.
The celebration in the stadium could be heard loud and clear from blocks away, and rightfully so. One fan captured the moment from their apartment, proving just how wild things got at Progressive Field.
This isn’t the first time Gonzalez has delivered as a postseason hero for Cleveland so far this October. In the Wild Card series, he hit a home run in the 15th inning against the Tampa Bay Rays to end a five-hour game and bring the Guardians to the ALDS. Now, when Cleveland was almost guaranteed to lose, he sent the team to victory that’s nearly bringing them to the ALCS.
This is especially exciting because this brings Cleveland one step closer to ending the longest World Series drought in MLB. Cleveland hasn’t won a World Series since 1948. They’ve made a few appearances since, but they just haven’t been able to secure a win.
The postseason has been undeniably epic with so many underdogs moving forward and fans having the loudest celebrations.
Is there a better sound that crowds erupting during the MLB Postseason?
The Philadelphia Phillies recently advanced after defeating the defending World Series champions, the Atlanta Braves. Fans gathered at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia and were heard from “a mile away.”
The Phillies hadn’t been to the playoffs since 2011 before this season, and they finished third in the NL East division standings. They managed to overtake the New York Mets in the Wild Card series and the Braves in the NLDS, so there’s certainly a lot to celebrate.
Another underdog joining the championship series is the San Diego Padres. The Padres overtook the Los Angeles Dodgers, who were favored to win the World Series by many. It’s gearing up to be one of the most unique World Series possible.
