WATCH: Marlins streaker evades security, escapes into the night, starts Phillies comeback in 9th inning
The baseball world was treated to one of the stranger streaking incidents in recent memory. Usually, we see the streaker live a brief moment of glory before eventually getting trucked by security. But this was far from usual.
This streaker outran security, scaled the outfield wall, and made off like a thief in the night:
What an athletic display out of that man right there. Marlins security was totally hopeless, and basically had to sit and watch just like the rest of us.
I’m curious to see how this plays out. Does he just get away with it? If so, I fully support it. He won fair and square and should receive zero disciplinary action, as far as I’m concerned.
To make matters even more hilarious, the individual seemed to have sparked a 9th-inning comeback from the Phillies. Three runs later, the Fightins emerged victorious. What a world we live in.
Oddly enough, this is the second time a streaker has ignited a Phillies rally against the Marlins. Two years ago, two people ran onto the field in the same game, and the Phils wound up hanging seven runs on the Fish in the 8th inning.
Don’t believe me? It was May 18, 2021.
And the video evidence to back it up:
This can’t be brushed off as a coincidence, I won’t stand for it. When a streaker takes the field during a Phillies vs. Marlins game, the Phillies end up on top.
If this was a bullshit interleague matchup, it wouldn’t be that significant, but against a divisional rival? We have to consider every option possible to secure our future success in the NL East.
