TAB Baldwin, a lifelong Boston fan, was calling the shots for Ateneo when the Red Sox’ seven-hour-and-20-minute game ended, with the Los Angeles Dodgers coming away with the victory to inch closer in the World Series, 2-1.
The Dodgers took home the victory after Max Muncy finished them off with a leadoff home run in the bottom of the 18th inning.
Baldwin isn’t really concerned about the loss, as he got his hands full with the Blue Eagles, but on Sunday, he’ll definitely put his Sox cap on.
“Red Sox lost. Saw the score. It's a seven-game series. They're up 2-1 now so, Sox are in good shape. Not too worried about it,” said Baldwin.
“I'm more worried about our team. That's what I'm here for today. But tomorrow, I'll be cheering on the Sox,” he added.
The match was the longest in a World Series history – which started at 8 a.m. in the Philippines – and ended at around 3:30, around the time where the Blue Eagles were wrapping up their 79-64 win over the NU Bulldogs.
Just imagine what it’s like for the people involved in the game, particularly the ones from the East Coast.
“It was an 18-inning game. They don't feel jetlagged in the States because they don't travel around the world very much. By the 18th inning, it was probably six-in-the-morning in Boston, maybe even seven,” said .
“They probably feel fatigued but they're pros and that's their job. I know they'll be disappointed,” he added.
The multi-titled mentor is hoping that they get one back quickly and bounce back from the draining loss.
“Hopefully tomorrow, they bring their bats because they didn't today.”
