Luis Severino was incredibly fired up after striking out Marcus Semien to escape a bases-loaded jam
The top of fourth inning of Wednesday night's AL Wild Card Game was a slow build-up of nervous energy culminating in one at-bat when Marcus Semien came up with two outs and the bases loaded with the A's trailing, 2-0.
Severino still had a no-hitter going at the time with Khris Davis reaching on an error and Matt Olson and Ramon Laureano drawing walks. Yet, he was still in danger of giving up some runs. Instead, he painted the corner with a 99.6-mph fastball and let out all the energy built up over the course of the inning in one intense celebration:

While Severino's celebratory yell wasn't able to drown out the Yankee Stadium crowd, no one can say he didn't try his darnedest.
