Rajai Davis Sent Cleveland Into A Frenzy With An Unbelievable Game-Tying Homer In The 8th Inning

Rajai Davis just hit a 2-run home run for the Cleveland Indians to tie a wild Game 7 of the World Series.

The two-out hit in the bottom of the eighth inning came off Cubs closer Aroldis Chapman, who was brought on for the five-out save.

The homer sent Cleveland’s Progressive Field into a frenzy.

Even Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James—wearing a “Cleveland Or Nowhere” shirt—was excited about the game-tying blast.

Davis’s home run completed what historians will inevitably call the J. R. Smith Rally, which began after the Cleveland Cavaliers forward ripped his shirt off on camera at Progressive Field with Cleveland trailing by three runs.

Brandon Guyer promptly doubled home Jose Ramirez in the bottom of the eighth and touched home on the Davis home run that nearly broke a Fox broadcast camera. Watch as the cameraman frantically tried to get out of the way of the home run. He saved himself, but the camera couldn’t escape the baseball’s wrath above the left field fence.

It was the first home run allowed by Chapman since June, when he played for the New York Yankees. It was also the first home run in World Series Game 7 history that tied the game in the eighth inning or later.
