Hamilton Cardinals get rare playoff series win
(Aug. 12, 2018 – Scott Radley, The Hamilton Spectator) The magnitude of the moment didn’t really register with him, even as he rounded first base and saw the ball gloriously disappear over the Bernie Arbour Stadium fence.
Down two runs in the bottom of the ninth inning of a playoff game at home on Sunday afternoon with two runners on base, he’d just clubbed a series-winning homer for a team that simply doesn’t win playoff series. Not for 15 straight seasons, anyway.
“It didn’t really hit me until I was rounding third and saw my teammates,” says Hamilton Cardinals designated hitter Connor Bowie.
What he saw was pure joy.
