Video of Yankee fan's reaction to Devers' home run is priceless


A 3-2 lead, one out in the ninth and flame-throwing closer Aroldis Chapman, who had only allowed one home run in his career to a left-handed batter,  facing 20-year-old lefty-hitting Rafael Devers down 1-and-2 in the count?

Yankees had this in the bag, right?

Or so Twitter user and Yankee superfan @JoezMcfly thought as he made a video of himself and other fans watching what they confidently assumed would be the final moments of the Bronx Bombers finishing off the hated Red Sox to take two of three-games in their weekend series.

The reaction to Devers taking Chapman's 102.8 mph fastball deep - the fastest recorded pitch ever hit for a home run - is priceless.

And, of course, here's what they were looking at:

There's no video of his reaction to Andrew Benintendi's RBI single in the 10th that gave the Sox a 3-2 victory to push their lead over second-place New York to 5 1/2 games in the A.L. East but he seems kind of resigned to a loss after the Devers' blast.
