There really is nothing like October baseball. And Game 4 between the Red Sox and Yankees was as good as it gets.
Up 4-1 in the bottom of the ninth, Craig Kimbrel needed only three outs to secure the series win for the Red Sox. The Yankees scored twice and came so close to winning it all, but a spectacular play by former Toronto Blue Jay Steve Pearce at first base ended the game, and the Yankees’ season.
After a review confirmed the Red Sox win, Twitter celebrated. Here are some of the best reactions.
Daaaaaa……Jankees lose!!! damn wat a game…congrats to my boys

Remember any other postseason saves that included 2 walks, a hit and a hit batter? Of course you don’t – because that wild save by Kimbrel was the first one ever!

The Boston #RedSox clinched the AL East at Yankee Stadium & won the ALDS vs the Yankees in the Bronx too. Salt in the wound for #Yankees fans.

That felt like every demon of my childhood and young adulthood came out of the attic, sat on the sofa and watched the 9th inning with me.
