The social media world reacted to the Francisco Lindor grand slam in a big way
The postseason is not for the faint of heart. On Friday night, during the Indians' 9-8 walk-off win in Game 2 of the ALDS presented by Doosan, Cleveland was down by five runs. That was until Francisco Lindor stepped up to the plate.
In the bottom of the sixth with the bases loaded, Lindor faced Chad Green. With a 1-0 count, Mr. Smile sent a ball over the fence -- bringing the Indians within a run. The crowd, teammates and the social media world went wild. Here were some of the reactions:
Lindor, of course, was pumped from the hit:
As was his teammate Austin Jackson:
Plenty of players were watching the game as well and gave their reactions to the grand slam. Most of them weren't quite sure what to say.

For the cherry on top, the Internet at Progressive Field had a "small" spike. Can you spot when the grand slam was hit?
And in the bottom of the eighth, Jay Bruce made it even more dramatic with a homer to tie it up. Of course he did.
With that win, the Indians take a 2-0 lead in the series. Make sure you watch on Sunday at 7:30 p.m. ET / 6:30 p.m. CT in Game 3 of the ALDS presented by Doosan on FS1 for the next action.
