Corey Seager's World Series home run scream sent the internet into a tizzy

Los Angeles Dodgers shortstop Corey Seager delighted baseball fans in Game 2 of the World Series, crushing a go-ahead home run against the seemingly unbeatable Justin Verlander in the sixth inning. Given the gravity of the situation, the usually reserved Seager did something unexpected right after making contact: He showed emotion.

Seager unleashed a scream at the plate just seconds after hitting the ball that would give the Dodgers a 3-1 lead. He knew it was out the instant he made contact, and he believed he just gave his team to go up 2-0 in the World Series.

That wouldn’t be the case, as the Houston Astros tied things up in the ninth. The Dodgers battled back a number of times, but still wound up losing 7-6 in extras. Still, in that moment, you couldn’t blame Seager for being pumped.

Here’s what it looked like in real-time:


As you might expect, we got some tremendous pictures out of it. We’re going to guess these will be etched in the minds of Dodgers’ fans for years to come … well … so long as they win the series.

It also inspired a few memes.




We have to admit, we don’t get the last two. But if you do, please do not under any circumstances attempt to explain them in the comments.
