I’m not ready for this amount of stress

Best two words in sports is Game 7? that's debatable. I feel nauseous.

We got Charlie Freaking Morton on the mound and that has to feel great.

Inning 1

Charlie Morton only needing 11 pitches to get through 1 inning!!! What a great start and more importantly! NO 1ST INNING HR!

^ live look at me, wine and all.

Margot gets on base with a ball that brushes his jersey? We’ll take that.

RANDY A ROZE A RENA GETS US ON THE BOARD! 2-0 RAYS!!!@!!!!

Inning 2

Charlie Morton with another 1-2-3 inning

We all do Eno. We are all Stans.

Sorry, wrong gif.

MIKE ZUNINO WITH AN ABSOLUTE BEAUTY OF AN HR. RAYS LEAD 3-0.

Inning 3

CFM is absolutely DEALING. Another 1-2-3 Inning.

Brandon Lowe leads off with a bunt against the shift!!!

Randy Arozarena and Austin Meadows ground into a potential double play, but ends up only being a force out.

Ji- Man Choi hits a long fly ball opposite field for an out, but it honestly looked longer than I thought!

4th Inning

Another inning another 1-2-3 inning by Charlie Morton. Pitching an absolute GEM.

Rays went down swinging, but Joey Wendle got a single!

5th Inning

Alex Bregman hit a casual grounder to Joey Wendle WHO THREW IT HIGH!

Ji-Man Choi make an aesthetically pleasing play and gets his foot down in time for the out.

Charlie Morton Finishes them off, and its still 3-0 Astros.

At the bottom of the inning, Rays run into some double plays, but now the Rays are on their 2nd Houston pitcher!

6th Inning

Charlie Morton has issued his first walk of the day, and works around it with a force out, but an infield hit by Altuve puts runners on 1st and 3rd with 1 out and Kevin Cash IS COMING OUT?!!

I think I hate this move.

AND HE’S BRINGING IN ANDERSON?!

Anderson got the out!!!

Rays opened the bottom of the inning with two on and nobody out! A sac fly moves Choi to 3rd base and Zunino hits a LONG FLY BALL TO DEEP LEFT FIELD. For an out. But it scores a run and Rays lead 4-0!

7th Inning

Anderson is out for the 7th inning and gave up back to back singles to Tucker and Bregman with 1 out.

ANDERSON GETS THE DOUBLE PLAY

RAYS STILL LEAD 4-0

8th Inning

Anderson back out? I don’t love it, I don’t hate it.

He walks the #9 hitter. Springer up to the plate. Springer grounds out! Altuve next with 2 outs. Even with a 4-0 lead I’m still nervous.

Altuve hits a grounder to Adames, who keeps it in the infield, but now their is 2 runners on, 2 outs and Michael Brantley at the plate.

Kevin Cash goes to Peter Fairbanks, and Fairbanks walks Brantley on 4 pitches. Bases loaded with Carlos Correa.

Correa singles and brings in 2. 4-2 Rays.

PETER FAIRBANKS FIRES 100.4 MPH FASTBALL FOR THE STRIKEOUT. LETS GO!

Rays bats back up for the 8th.

Choi gets a nice single, Willy works a walk and the Rays have two on with 1 out, but Wendle grounds into a double play.

9th Inning

Three. More. Outs. Fairbanks back in.

TUCKER STRIKES OUT!

2 OUTS LEFT

Gurriel singles to put a runner on.

REDDICK STRIKES OUT

1 MORE OUT

DIAZ FLIES OUT

RAYS WIN THE PENNANT

THE RAYS ARE GOING TO THE WORLD SERIES.

LETS GO.

LETS GO!
