Thousands of Rochester Red Wings fans packed Frontier Field to watch their favorite team take on the Pawtucket Red Sox in round one of the playoffs, and they weren't disappointed.
The Red Wings won Game One against Pawtucket by a score of 7-1.
This is the first time since 2006 the Red Wings have made it to playoffs and fans couldn't be more excited.
"It's always fun here. It's more fun when you win, but it's always fun here. It's the atmosphere, it's the people, it's baseball, it's outside. Winning is great but not a necessity," said Pat Ross
"I'm super excited, first time I've seen the Red Wings in the playoffs. I've lived here since 2003 and I have yet to see them in the playoffs. This is just out of this world, I can't wait to see and watch them win," said Eric Hoad of West Henrietta.
"It makes the Red Wings more relevant on the national scene. The relationship with the twins has been great, there's always guys going up and down continually all year long. They have players competing for a championship just elevates the team and stature that much more," said Andrew Lucyszyn from Chili.
Game Two of the best-of-five series is Thursday.
