Nah, that place was rockin' -- especially in the 8th and 9th. We cheered like madmen when Rolen tripled and then scored, and after his crap everyone booed Hughes until their throats became hoarse. When Chapman came in the place was electric. Everybody was on their feet and cheering from the moment he entered from the bullpen.
This really was an awesome game to go to. Packed house and big win against a divisional rival. It was even sweeter that Hughes gave up the winning run while 'Cutch' put up an O-fer. Bring out the brooms tomorrow boys!
Thanks. I figured as much. Watching on MLB Network, they must really do a good job drowning out background/crowd noise. It looked like a fired up crowd, but didn't sound like it so much on the broadcast.
I wish I could've been in town this weekend for this series.
