A fire alarm went off during a Cardinals no-hitter and Twitter could not handle it

For the second night in a row on Tuesday, a Cardinals pitcher making his first MLB start was throwing a no-hitter against the Reds. But unlike Daniel Poncedeleon, who got through seven innings of no-hit ball on Monday, Austin Gomber ran into some trouble in that frame.
Not because of the Reds' offense but because of, um, the Great American Ball Park fire alarm:

The Reds reported it as "a malfunction in one of the detector units" and the delay to open the bottom half of the seventh lasted nearly eight minutes -- long enough for Marcell Ozuna to get in some quality lounge time:

And then, once the game resumed, future school bus driverJoey Votto broke up the no-no with a one-out single.

Eugenio Suárez then tied things up at 2 with a two-run homer and Gomber came out of the game. Of course, Twitter was feeling some feelings about the fire alarm:


Fortunately for the Cards (and their fans), St. Louis won, 4-2, in 11 innings.
