Twitter goes wild after Ryan Madson blows up in Game 2

With his Los Angeles Dodgers holding a 2-1 lead over the Boston Red Sox in the bottom of the 5th in Game 2 of the World Series, veteran reliever Ryan Madson took to the mound with the bases loaded.

Madsen was relieving a pitcher in Hyun-Jin Ryu who had kept the Sox’ bats quiet for four innings. Not until he ran into trouble in the fifth did manager Dave Roberts go to the pen.

It didn’t work out swimmingly. Madson walked the first batter he faced to tie the game. Then, in the very next at-bat, he allowed a two-run single to J.D. Martinez.

This gave Boston a 4-2 lead after five innings. Needless to say, Madson’s struggles didn’t go unnoticed on the Twitterverse.
