Before the Mets misplaced to the Cardinals 6-5 and fired hitting coach Chili Davis and his assistant Tom Slater, the crew had one thing else to fear about — truly ending the sport.
With two outs in the backside of the ninth, the lights at Busch Stadium went out. The stadium was utterly darkish and the restricted capability crowd let out an audible gasp. Unfortunately, chaos didn’t ensue. Rather, the complete ordeal took lower than 20 seconds.
But the energy outage didn’t cease the former Met/Cardinal and present SNY broadcaster from questioning how lengthy this shit was going to go on.
“Oh my God,” you hear Hernandez say in the video. “Hhow long are we going to be here for this?”
And simply as Hernandez started saying, “I’m not sure I’ve ever seen—” the discipline lit up.
I’m positive he has seen [a stadium go dark] earlier than. Remember the Super Bowl blackout of 2013? That suspended play for 34 minutes! It additionally had some gamers floating conspiracies a couple of motive behind the blackout. “You’re a zillion-dollar company, and your lights go out?” Ray Lewis requested after that sport. “No. No way.”
A 34-minute suspension in all probability would’ve been all too lengthy for Hernandez, and anybody else for that matter. With 162 video games to play, everybody from the scorching canine vendor to umpires are all the time eager to preserve issues movin’ proper alongside.
Fortunately, no matter difficulty went on with the lights was resolved shortly. So the good of us at SNY continued their jobs and completed doing what they do finest, calling one other Mets loss.
