False Alarm During NL Wild Card Game Draws Hilarious Twitter Reaction

Since Major League Baseball adopted a winner-take-all Wild Card game to begin the playoffs, weird things have been known to happen.

But Tuesday night at Nationals Park, things went to a whole new level of weird with Washington and the Milwaukee Brewers fighting for their playoff lives.

In the fourth inning, the fire alarm at the ballpark began going off and the stadium’s PA system was down.

Play continued and the Nationals tweeted out that it was just a false alarm.

But plenty of Nationals fans certainly saw their team’s 3-1 deficit as an emergency.

Only one team can advance, but Twitter remains undefeated. Oh by the way, the Nationals scored three runs in the bottom of the eighth to win 4-3.

See? No emergency.
